Webinar Abstract:
Since 1998, Software Carpentry has evolved from a week-long training course
at the US national laboratories into a worldwide volunteer effort to
improve researchers' computing skills. In this webinar, Software
Carpentry's co-founder will explore what's been learned along the away
about what scientists, engineers, and other researchers actually need to
know about programming in order to make their work more shareable, more
reproducible, more likely to be correct, and more efficient. He will also
discuss practices that the DataONE community and similar groups may be able
to use to help researchers deal with large or messy data in a broad range
of disciplines.
