Data Carpentry

The Software Sustainability Institute has received funding from the Scottish Funding Council to deliver two different learning programmes.

Data Carpentry is running a series of two-day online courses on data skills for beginners, for learners in Scotland or working for Scottish employers (see full criteria below).

Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research at the University of Manchester is running "Data Carpentry workshop for Social Scientists with R" on the 13th and 14th December 2018. This two-day workshop is aimed at social scientists seeking to increase their skills in data management, particularly in dealing with new forms of complex and unstructured data.

The Carpentry programmes teach essential computing and data skills to researchers across all disciplines. 

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 wit

There are still some places left at the Data Carpentry for Social Scientists and Humanities workshop organised by the SSI Fellow 2016 Heather Ford at the University of Leeds on 21-22 November 2016.
