I know what you’re thinking.
“What the heck is Data Carpentry?” “What does Social Science have to do with woodworking?” “Is the Library trying to hoodwink me into building bookshelves?”
But wait, we’re not talking about this kind of carpentry…
We’re talking Data Carpentry, which is part of the larger Carpentries organization. Workshops presented under the umbrella of the Carpentries are designed to teach foundational coding and data science skills to researchers. The lessons are designed with data-intensive research in mind and no previous experience with any of the tools being taught is expected. You don’t even need to be a social scientist! Anyone wishing to learn the introductory computational skills needed for data management and analysis in a research environment is welcome to attend.
This FREE (yes free!) Data Carpentry workshop will cover R, OpenRefine, and best practices for working with Spreadsheets. You do not need any prior knowledge of these tools to attend. Come prepared to work, to ask questions, and learn along with your fellow carpenters. No, not THAT type of carpenter…
Join us on October 21 and 22, 2019 for this fun and informative workshop. Registration is FREE. For more information, the Code of Conduct, and to register, please go here: https://tufts-carpentries.github.io/2019-10-21-tuftsHirsh/.
