Data Carpentry

The Carpentries (a fiscally sponsored project of Community Initiatives) was formed in January 2018 by formally merging Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry.

Registrations are now open for CarpentryCon 2018 in Dublin. The event will take place from 30th May to 1st June 2018. 

The Research Software Group and the Software Sustainability have organised a Data Carpentry workshop, which will take place on 1st & 2nd August 2017 at the University of Southampton.

The course will cover data organisation in spreadsheets and OpenRefine, SQL for data management, and an introduction to R for data analysis. By the end of the workshop, learners will be able to more effectively analyse and manage their data to aid reproducibilty and  to increase their chances of furthering their research.

The Software Sustainability Institute has gathered information on the Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) in a map, as some of them may require training in basic software development skills to help scientists improve or speed up their research, ensure that their results are more reliable and verifiable, encourage sharing code and collaboration with ot
