Software Carpentry Training Course

2 November 2023 @ 08:00 - 3 November 2023 @ 17:00

The MASTS Numerical and Experimental Hydrodynamic Modelling (NEHM) forum invite SUPER DTP PGRs to 2 days of software training.

The training will be delivered by Paddy McCann from the University of St Andrews Research Computing Team and will focus on the use of Git version control software, the Linux command line, and scientific programming with Python. The course structure will follow standard Software Carpentry courses but may be tailored slightly for the marine science and ocean modelling attendees. We will also be combining the training with an evening NEHM showcase event and dinner, enabling attendees to communicate their NEHM related research and/or ideas to the forum.

The course is offered free of charge but travel and subsistence costs are the responsibility of participants. PGRs can use their Research Training Grants (please confirm supervisor agreement to costs when applying) or their SUPER TSG to attend.

The course is open to 20 people. If you would like to attend please complete this form before close on Monday 31 July. The form includes a section asking you for a short paragraph explaining why you would like to attend and deserve a place.

We are also looking for demonstrators, so if you feel you have appropriate expertise and would like to demonstrate and participate in the NEHM showcase event, please do get in touch with Rory. Queries about the course can also be directed to Rory O’Hara Murray by email.
