Digital Scholarship Brown Bag: "So, You're Thinking about Coding?"

Join us at the Center for Research Data and Digital Scholarship for our brown bag series. Join us on 9/12 at 12noon with Andy Monaghan from Research Computing, in a talk titled “So, You're Thinking about Coding?”

  • Are you new to programming? Do you think programming will be useful for school or research? Do you want to get started with programming but are unsure where to begin? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this informational talk will serve as a great resource to get you started. We will explain the importance of programming in an increasingly, data driven world. With so many different coding languages available, it can be difficult to choose the right one for your project. We will provide an overview of some of the most common languages used for scientific computing (particularly R and Python) and discuss the pros, cons and common applications for each.

Throughout the academic year, CU students and faculty will address how they practice digital and/or open scholarship and what benefits there are to doing so. Through these informal talks and ensuing discussion, we hope to increase the exposure of the different approaches to discovery and the novel research questions that can be addressed through the use of digital research methods and tools. All are welcome to join us! Light refreshments will be served.
