UF Carpentries Club: Upcoming Events!

August 17, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Due to the latest State of Florida and UF mandates,

Fall 2021 Data Carpentry workshops may be hybrid of in-person and virtual

There will be a two-day workshop, Genomics, tentatively scheduled for September 2021, hosted online with Zoom and is a free workshop. Seats are limited to 40. Details will be posted later this week. Please check back.

The UF Carpentry Club is piloting a brand new workshop curriculum, “Introduction to Geospatial Analysis in R“. Have you ever not be able to recreate a map or analysis in ArcMap? Would you rather use a scripting approach to geospatial analysis? Come join us for this workshop. We will start with an introduction to R and geospatial, so no background experience is required (but will be helpful).

Data Carpentry develops and teaches workshops on the fundamental data skills needed to conduct research. Its target audience is researchers who have little to no prior computational experience, and its lessons are domain specific, building on learners’ existing knowledge to enable them to quickly apply skills learned to their own research. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems.

The course is aimed at graduate students and other researchers. You don’t need to have any previous knowledge of the tools that will be presented at the workshop.
