Selina Aragon, SSI Communications Lead, summarises the highlights from our Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet.
Learning to code can be daunting and often it’s hard to know where to start to look for resources. As part of the Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet, we’ve collated training resources for researchers that want to learn to code. We’ve focused on resources that can aid researchers work better with spreadsheets or help them move beyond them.
Welcome to the Research Software Camp: Beyond the spreadsheet! From today to the 12th November 2021, we'll be exploring the use of spreadsheets in research, tools that are available to manage them, and how to move beyond them. The Camp is hosted online over the course of two week, and it’s completely free to access. 
Our Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet kicks off next week! Watch our video introduction to the Camp's activities.
From the organising committee to our many volunteers, we would like to thank everyone who made the Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet happen. 
We're hosting live workshops and recorded presentations as part of the Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet (online from 1 to 12 November 2021). All of the workshops and presentations have been prepared and will be delivered by the speakers at the panel discussion "Do we have the right tools for research?". 
Registrations to the panel discussion: “Do we have the right tools for research?” Are now open! This session is part of the Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadhseet. It will take place on Friday 5th November 2021 from 2 to 3pm GMT.

Peter is a consultant programmer for the DataLab at Oxford University, where he is part of the team that built OpenSAFELY, a highly secure, transparent, open-source software platform for analysis of electronic health records data.

He is a Fellow of the Python Software Foundation, and chaired PyCon UK in 2017 and 2018.

Have you recently started writing your own code? Is your code related to research or a research project in any way? Would you like to get critical but kind feedback on your code? Could do with a second pair of eyes to track down a bug? Come to our Code Review Clinic! The Code Review Clinic will run on week 2 (8-12 November 2021) of the Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet. There will be one session in the morning and one in the afternoon from Monday to Friday. Our aim is to allow first time/beginner coders to get general but targeted feedback on their code from an expert.
