Graduate Student Research Data Boot Camp
The Graduate Student Research Data Bootcamp will provide incoming and continuing graduate students with a gentle introduction to data and programming-related research tools that will increase their access to cutting-edge methods as they begin their programs and research. Topics covered include reproducible research (especially using containerization tools such as Docker); collaboration and version control (using Git and Github); data analysis and visualization fundamentals in Python and R; and an overview of publishing platforms, impact, and scholarly communication. Students will have the option of completing an assessment project that certifies competency in the covered topics with a Digital Badge. No previous experience in coding or programming is required and all skill levels are welcome!
The course will run over three days (August 3rd - 5th) from 9:00am to 2:00pm MST (mandatory for Digital Badge completion) with optional clinics for assistance from 2:30pm to 4:30pm.
Current and incoming grad students can register now! Non-grad students that are interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be placed on a waitlist.
Registration is required. Zoom information will be sent in the confirmation email.
