This Friday is week two of the Software Carpentry series at DaSH. We had a great turnout last week with over 60 people in the room to hear Tom and Mike introduce the series and tell us why programming skills are essential for being a data scientist. This week we get down to business with an introduction to the Unix shell and bash scripting as a starting point.
Mike and Tom will be in the Flex Room from 8:30 onwards if you have any specific questions or issues that you want to explore further, or need some help ensuring you are ready for the second session. The formal session will kick off at 9:00.
If you missed last week, then the software needed for this course can be installed as per instructions at https://software-carpentry.org/v5/setup.html. These instructions either let you install a complete virtual machine, or individual packages as needed.
Hope to see you there.
