CEREO Data Management Workshops

Data Management Workshops

CEREO regularly hosts Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry workshops.  The Carpentry workshops are designed to provide basic training for scientists who want to learn to build, use, validate, and share data using versatile open-source software. By teaching participants fundamental software skills and best practice techniques for working with and analyzing data, workshops help researchers spend more time doing useful research.

Data Carpentry workshops introduce the computational skills needed for effective data management and analysis. Instructors guide participants through the data life cycle, with exercises on topics from data cleaning and organization in spreadsheets to data manipulation and visualization with R or Python. These workshops are hands-on and provide a user-friendly and fun environment in which to learn data-driven research skills. Examples of software topics covered include: Data cleaning with OpenRefine, data analysis in R or Python, and data management with SQL.
