COMBINE R Software Carpentry Bootcamp (Beta) 8-9 Dec


We are pleased to announce that we’ll be running a two-day Software Carpentry Workshop on December 8th & 9th.

We’ll be teaching the basic lab skills for scientific computing using the R statistical programming language, along with the unix shell for interacting with and pipelining scientific software, and Git/GitHub for tracking changes to your work and collaborating with other scientists.

The material will be novice level, so while it’s helpful if you’ve encountered R or another programming language before, we won’t expect you to have any level of detailed knowledge.

The workshop will be co-hosted by ResBaz, powered by the “Research Platforms” department at the University of Melbourne.

The workshop is free, but space is limited, so make sure to register to secure a place!

Date and Time:
Monday December 8th, 9:00am – 5:00pm
Tuesday December 9th, 9:00am – 5:00pm

Old Arts Collaborative Learning Space 3, The University of Melbourne, Parkville



Scott Ritchie is our lead instructor for R. He can be contacted at scottr [at]
