Library Carpentry - Using Data Workshop

April 16, 2021 - 9:00am to 12:30pm

 

This three-week workshop series teaches the fundamentals of working with messy data. If you're in the humanities, social sciences, or natural sciences and you have messy data, this workshop will help you:

automate repetitive, boring, error-prone tasks

create, maintain and analyze sustainable and reusable data

work effectively with IT and systems colleagues

better understand the use of software in research

...and much more!

Your registration for this event will register you to attend the entire workshop which takes place over the course of three successive Fridays: April 16, 23, and 30. You can learn more about the curriculum here: https://annajiat.github.io/2021-04-16-merced-online/
