Data Management Workshops
CEREO regularly hosts Software Carpentry and a Data Carpentry workshops during the Spring semesters. 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 is designed to be hands-on, where participants learned how to use OpenRefine to organize and clean data, work in R and SQL for data analysis, task automation and visualization, importing data into other analysis software, and Git for version control to record and archive changes in a file or set of files over time.

Software Carpentry is a hands-on course to provide basic training for scientists who want to learn how to work with data in open-source software such as Unix and R, and provides some great information and experience in program design (esp. for automated tasks), version control and data management.
