Carpentry: Training on foundational coding and data science skills

At University of Oslo (UiO), Carpentries workshops based on Software CarpentryData Carpentry, and Library Carpentry lessons are offered to facilitate sharing and re-using of code and data among graduates and researchers from all faculties and units.

What can I learn at Carpentries workshops?

Below are the major Carpentries lessons that Carpentry@UiO offers. Workshops are run mainly on-site throughout one full work day (9:00-16:00). All participants are expected to follow the Carpentries code of conduct

Shell speeds up repetitive and tedious processes. It is also an essential skill needed to use high-performance computing (HPC) resources.

Git helps you keep track of what you've done, to better collaboration and to help yourself in the future. During the workshops we also use GitHub.

Python is now widely used in scientific computing with various powerful packages. Carpentry@UiO runs workshops for participants with no programming experience ("Plotting and Programming in Python" lesson) and for participants at intermediate level ("Programming with Python" lesson, episodes 10-12).

R is commonly used for statistical analysis, but it is also a powerful programming language. Workshops on R focus on teaching best practices for scientific computing, such as: breaking down analyses into modular units, task automation, and encapsulation. Workshops on R may use lessons from Data Carpentry instead.

Databases include powerful tools for search and analysis, and can handle large, complex data sets. The lesson will show how to use a database to explore research data by using SQL.
