Software Carpentry workshop


Software Carpentry workshops are organised at TU Delft by 4TU.ResearcheData in collaboration with TU Delft Library, the Data Stewards and the TU Delft Digital Competence Centre (DCC).

A Software Carpentry workshop is a hands-on, four half-days (online due to COVID measures) that covers the core basic skills needed to work reproducibly with code. The workshop covers task automation with Unix shell, version control with Git, basic concepts of data management and an introduction to Python programming. This is an introductory course aimed at researchers who have little to no prior programming experience.

Software Carpentry workshops are included in the Graduate School Education Programme of TU Delft. TU Delft PhD candidates can receive 2 GS credits for participating in a Software Carpentry workshop.
