No DaSH on November 27

Hi DaSHers,
Due to a combination of factors (ie people being unavailable) there will be no DaSH this week. There are still a few weeks to go before Christmas, and we hope to have a few good sessions before then.



DaSH Session for November 13

Hi DaSHers
Tomorrow is Friday the 13th, but such clunky superstitions can’t stop DaSH. Tomorrow morning we will be having a DaSH question and answer session. Come along if you have any questions or concerns about using R, Matlab, python or other data science related program, or you want to know more about using the unix shell or GIT. in fact bring any question you have that is related to data science. We will have experts in the room who can hopefully answer your questions, and if not, then they will be able to work with you to find the answers.


Next week Pearse Buchanan and Eric Oliver will be starting up an introductory course on python titled “Python for Oceanographers”.

The sessions will be weekly and will run for 9 weeks. Each week, they will be talking through one chapter from the book “A Hands-On Introduction to Using Python in the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences”. This book is freely available for download from the following link:

The first session will begin on Tuesday 17 November at 1pm in the Rori Flex Room and will involve a quick briefing about the book, led by Eric Oliver. This first session will be coding free because we want to find out what it is that YOU want to learn. What do YOU want to use Python for?

If you are interested, please email so that they can gauge numbers.

Subject: FW: Upcoming MATLAB Webinars



I don’t know if lots of people get MATLAB emails – I just got this one today so it’s rather short notice,

but perhaps a few DaSHERs might be interested in the first two of these MATLAB webinars – (more details below)

I deleted the hyperlinks in the original email since they all had tracking IDs that probably point to me, so people should go to the website: and select Events to sign up.
