The NIH Office of the Associate Director for Data Science and the NIH Library are pleased to host Software Carpentry Workshops taught by volunteers from the NIH community.

This workshop will cover basic concepts and tools for scientific computing, including:
Basics of structured programming in Python (in October) or R (in November)
Version control using Git
Task automation using the Unix shell
An introduction to high-performance computing at NIH using BioWulf (October session only)
