Software Carpentry is a normally a two-day workshop designed to teach beginning computing skills and best practices to faculty, staff, and students. In response to the COVID-19, University Libraries will be hosting this event across four consecutive Wednesdays. The Zoom room adress will be sent out the day before the first workshop section.

This introductory workshop will cover how to incorporate better practices when working with data and to strengthen data management skills.

The details of the material can be found in the lesson materials and include the topics of data organization in spreadsheets, data cleaning using OpenRefine, data analysis and visualization in R, and data management with SQL (databases).
