CANCELLED: Software Carpentry with Python

This event has already taken place, please don't try to go to it!

GW has moved to online-only classes in an effort to limit exposure to the covid-19 virus. This workshop is cancelled in accordance with that guidance. 

Learn about automating tasks with the Unix shell, version control with Git, and data analysis and visualization with Python during two days of hands-on instruction. Participants must register ahead of time and attend for both days: March 26 and March 27. The course is aimed at GW graduate students, faculty, and other researchers. Advanced undergraduates are also welcome. You don't need to have any previous knowledge of the tools that will be presented at the workshop.

The workshop is free to any GW-affiliated participant. Installation of software will be required and learners will be emailed detailed instructions in advance.

This workshop is part of the Programming and Coding series for those interested in enhancing their skills in web or software development, coding and scripting, and automating processes to retrieving or cleaning data.
