The University of North Texas Libraries will be hosting a Software Carpentry event in April via Zoom. Through a set of lessons, follow along with an instructor and a supportive team to learn research computing skills relevant to students, faculty, and staff across disciplines. Lessons teach you to: reduce tedious tasks by utilizing the command-line with Bash, create visualizations of your datasets with short Python scripts, and use Git for version control to track changes you make in your files. This event will be held as three lessons taught over four (non-consecutive) days in April and is open to all. Registration is per lesson, so attend one, multiple, or all.

Pre-registration is required at


Software Carpentry aims to help researchers get their work done in less time and with less pain by teaching them essential research computing skills. This hands-on workshop will cover basic concepts and tools, including program design with Python, version control with git, and task automation with the Bash shell. The workshop is made up of three lessons spread over four days.
