The Research Computing Education initiative (RCE@Pitt) is hosting its Data Basics workshop series again this fall.
Data Basics is an eight-part workshop series covering the basic techniques for research computing with the Python programming language. The series is oriented towards participants who have some experience with computing and programming and are motivated to expand these skills to help with their research.
Data Basics is open to graduate students, postdocs, researchers, faculty, and staff from all disciplines and any skill level. This term the workshop will be held on Zoom.
Participants should plan to attend all eight sessions as they will be taught in a sequence. If you are only interested in a subset of the topics, please check out other workshops available at the University of Pittsburgh.
Each Data Basics session will take place from noon to 3 p.m. on the following dates:
- October 10 – Data Centric Python with Jupyter Part 1
- October 17 – Data Centric Python with Jupyter Part 2
- October 24 – Computing Environments and the Unix Shell
