Software Carpentry Workshop in R Is March 20-24

Michigan Tech will host a “Software Carpentry Workshop in R” from March 20 to March 24, 2023, each day from 3-5:30 p.m. ET. The virtual workshop is open to and free for Michigan Tech students, faculty, and staff.

The workshop covers basic R concepts and tools, including program design and plotting.

The target audience is learners who have little to no prior computational experience. Instructors place priority on creating a friendly environment to empower researchers and enable data-driven discovery. Even those with some experience will benefit, as the goal is to teach not only how to do analyses, but how to manage the process to make it as automated and reproducible as possible.

Please register by Monday, March 13, 2023. Space is limited and it will likely fill quickly. Confirmation of your registration will be emailed Tuesday, March 14.

Register here.

Please note, learners are expected to commit to attending the entire workshop. 

This is the third of a series of such workshops to be hosted this Spring. Additional announcements will be made for these future events as they are confirmed.

The Carpentries is a fiscally sponsored project of Community Initiatives. They teach skills that are immediately useful for researchers, using lessons and datasets that allow researchers to quickly apply what they have learned to their own work. I am really excited about using the Software Carpentry curriculum here to help our graduate students and faculty become more efficient in their research.
