What is this workshop about?
Our goal is to help scientists become more productive by teaching them basic computing skills like program design, version control, testing and task automation. In this two-day bootcamp, short tutorials will alternate with hands-on practical exercises. Participants will be encouraged both to help one another, and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems during and between sessions.
What are the objectives of the course?
You will learn to:
use the shell to do more in less time
automate your tasks and pipelines
write structured programs
use Git to manage and share information
how (and how much) to test programs
