After today’s DaSH meeting I was told about the upcoming Research Bazaar in February next year (see resbaz.tumblr.com/conference). What is a research bazaar? I will let the organisers answer this for themselves
ResBaz is an academic training conference (i.e. think of this event as a giant Genius Bar at an Apple store), where research students and early career researchers can come to acquire the digital skills (e.g. computer programming, data analysis, etc.) that underpin modern research. Some of this training will be delivered in the ‘hands-on’ workshop style of Mozilla’s global Software Carpentry bootcamps.
Check out their website resbaz.tumblr.com/conference for more details. It would be great to have some DaSH people go along and report back to the group the skills they learnt.
And while I have your attention, next week’s DaSH session will be led by Tom Remenyi and will involve a presentation and discussion on the stengths of different text editors for programming, and why we should all be using vim (because it’s good for us).
Friday 7 November in the Aurora Lecture Theatre
