Carpentries @ MIT - R Track

Software Carpentry aims to help researchers get their work done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic research computing skills. This hands-on introductory workshop will cover basic concepts and tools, including program design, version control, data management, and task automation. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems.

The R track of the event takes place on four days from August 5 to August 10, 2021. You are expected to attend the workshop on all four days. If you can no longer make it to the workshop, please be sure to cancel your registration since we may have a long waiting list. Thank you!
