    Breakout Group 2: Software Carpentry Taster

    Room 731, 7th Floor, IOE Building

    Software Carpentry teaches researchers the computing skills they need to get more done in less time and with less pain. A web of volunteer instructors that have been trained into good teaching practices run workshops worldwide mostly to young researchers, but they are available to all. In this mini-workshop, we will run a quick overview of a two-day workshop. You are encouraged to bring your laptops with you already set up with the tools needed*, if you don't succeed to do so before we will give you access to an online environment for you to be able to participate. * You can follow the instructions from our last workshop: http://rits.github-pages.ucl.ac.uk/2019-04-08-UCL_software_carpentry/

    Before you join the event, we would like to ask you:
