ATTENTION: We have to do a short maintenance with downtime on Tue 18 Oct 2021, 9:00 - 10:00 CEST. Please finish your work in time to prevent data loss.
Software Carpentry aims to help researchers get their work done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic research computing skills. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems.


This workshop includes an introduction to Bash shell scripting and version control with Git. It also covers data analysis and visualisation in R, focusing on working with tabular data and other core data structures, using conditionals and loops, writing custom functions, and creating publication-quality graphics. As our more introductory R offering, this workshop also introduces learners to RStudio and strategies for getting help. This workshop is appropriate for learners with no previous programming experience. Find more information at this link.

Target Group

The course is aimed at Helmholtz researchers and partner institutions, but we will also admit a limited number of researchers from other institutions. You don't need to have any previous knowledge of the tools that will be presented at the workshop.


This workshop is sponsored by Helmholtz Information & Data Science Academy (HIDA) in cooperation with The Carpentries.
