A “Software Carpentry” boot camp designed to teach Purdue researchers, especially graduate students, tools and techniques to get their research computing done with less hassle, more efficiently and faster is set for March 17-18.

The Purdue boot camp will run from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day March 17 and 18 in Rawls Hall, Room 3058. The two-day event will cover topics such as using the Bash shell to do more in less time, basic Python programming for data analysis and other purposes, employing version control to manage and share information, and program testing, debugging and documentation.
