Event description
Data Carpentry is a two-day workshop designed to teach beginning computing skills and best practices to faculty, staff, and students. The aim is to teach researchers basic concepts and skills for working with data so that they can get more done in less time, and with less pain.
The focus of this workshop for beginners is how to incorporate better practices when working with their data and to strengthen their data management skills. The details of the material can be found in the lesson materials and cover the topics of data organization in spreadsheets, data cleaning using OpenRefine, data analysis and visualization in R, and data management with SQL (databases). The workshop does not teach any particular domain tools, but the foundational skills that will allow you to conduct any analysis and analyze the output of a data pipeline.
This workshop is geared towards beginners and no prior experience is necessary. For those who have intermediate and advanced skills working with data and code, OU Libraries offers regular office hours with specialists. Stop by the Data Analytics, Visualization, & Informatics Syndicate (DAVIS) located in the Zarrow Family Faculty And Graduate Student Center on Thursdays from 1PM to 3PM or Fridays from 10AM to 12PM with any questions. Additional help can be accessed with the Digital Scholarship Specialists. Intermediate and advanced learners are invited to participate in workshops as helpers in order to learn more about the Software and Data Carpentry program and its pedagogy.
Parking information can be found at the OU Parking and Transportation Servivces.
