Registration is now open for several workshops being offered during Boise State’s Research Computing Days, happening March 15-16 in the Student Union Building.
Registration is open for these classes:
- Unix Shell and Git
- Scientific Programming, including: Intro to Python, Intro to Python for Biologists, Advanced Python (machine learning), MATLAB and R
- R2 Labs
Participants only need to register for the workshops and labs. Otherwise, individuals are invited to come check out Research Computing Days activities as their schedules allow, including a talk given by keynote speaker Josh Anderson from the University of Michigan, lead developer of HOOMD-blue; a poster session round-up to share computational and data-intensive research being done by students at Boise State; lightning talks to hear how Boise State researchers wrangle computing and coding tools to impact their research projects; and a team code challenge – featuring prizes – geared towards software carpentry participants to spend the afternoon tackling real-world research challenges with their new skills.
Research Computing Days is free for the campus research community and anyone looking to learn more and exchange ideas about scientific computing.
