This quarter, UCSB Carpentry is offering a summer series of four carpentry workshops, including Introduction to Bash/Shell, Introduction to Version Control with Git, and introductory R and Python. You may sign up for any, or all free workshops depending on your interest. The Git workshop builds on the introductory skills in the first Bash/Shell workshop, so if you have not had previous experience with Bash/Shell please sign up for both workshops. There are no prerequisites for the Introductory R or Python workshops. Registration for all workshops opens Friday, July 23 at 8:00am.

Summer Carpentry Series: Introduction to Bash-Shell
August 9 and 10, 2021, 9:00 - 11:00am

This event is a two day example-driven workshop on August 9 and 10, 2021 for introduction to using the Bash/Shell. Short tutorials alternate with hands-on practical exercises, and participants are encouraged both to help one another, and to try applying what they have learned to their own research problems during and between sessions. Participants should bring your own laptop to work on. This should be a Windows, Mac, or Linux machine, not a Chromebook or tablet. You should also be sure to have admin privileges on your laptop. 

Prerequisites: No previous experience with programming required
