Carpentry: The Bash Shell

Software Carpentry aims to help researchers get their work done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic research computing skills. 

Read the full course information here

The course is aimed at graduate students and other researchers. You don't need to have any previous knowledge of the tools that will be presented at the workshop.

Participants must bring a laptop with a Mac, Linux, or Windows operating system (not a tablet, Chromebook, etc.) that they have administrative privileges on. They should have a few specific software packages installed (listed in the full course information, click the link above).


Participants who arrive at the workshop without having installed and checked if the software packages run cannot participate. There will be time for troubleshooting issues related to installation 30 minutes before the workshop starts.

If there are questions related to installation and testing of the software packages needed, feel free to ask us via email to
