Software Carpentry's mission is to help scientists and engineers become more productive by teaching them basic lab skills for computing like program design, version control, data management, and task automation.
This workshop is a part of the programming module MEDN68400 for the NHS Clinical Bioinformatics course. During the hands-on training sessions we will cover core skills such as effectively working with command line, structured software development and version control. The participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems.
Date: 09-10 November 2015, 09:00-17:00
