Data Carpentry develops and teaches workshops on the fundamental data skills needed to conduct research. Its target audience is researchers who have little to no prior computational experience, and its lessons are domain specific, building on learners' existing knowledge to enable them to quickly apply skills learned to their own research. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems.
The workshop will cover:
- (Monday morning) Data Organization in Spreadsheets. OpenRefine for Data Cleaning.
- (Tuesday morning) Introduction to R.
- (Wednesday morning) Continuation of R: Data analysis and Visualization.
- (Thursday morning) Data Management with SQL.
Each session will run 09:30 - 13:00 BST
