SURGE Discover Coding

May 15, 2019

Join SURGE, ShiftKey and Ocean Tracking Network (OTN) in our first Discover Workshop series! This session will be a full day scientific Python workshop ideal for scientists who need to use Python for their work, or are interested in learning about it — even if you have no previous coding experience.

The workshop will follow the well-established Data Carpentry curriculum. Specifically, it will use the Python for Ecologists module, but if you’re not an ecologist, don’t worry! The material is applicable to most areas of science, and only uses ecology data for examples.

Over the following three Wednesdays, we will be hosting GitLunches – two hour workshops to get students and researchers more comfortable with coding, and using GitHub for managing software projects. Finally, we will wrap up the series by celebrating International Year of the Salmon by holding a full day workshop using OTN’s salmon geospatial data and kicking off OTN and Big Spruce’s Tag You’re It Beer Collab!
