Data Carpentry and iDigBio Offer ADBC Pre-Summit Workshop

October 30, 2017 @ 9:00 am - October 31, 2017 @ 4:30 pm

The UF Carpentries Club and iDigBio are offering a two day Data Carpentry workshop to help participants in the 2017 ADBC summit and the UF community get started learning R and common data management tools such as the spreadsheets, OpenRefine, and SQL. Need to learn some programming for a class? Have data you’re scared to work with in Excel? Want to collaborate effectively with your peers? We were there once too. Come start learning with us.

We will cover Data organization in spreadsheets and OpenRefine, Introduction to R, Data analysis and visualization in R and SQL for data management. Participants should bring their laptops and plan to participate actively. By the end of the workshop learners should be able to more effectively manage and analyze data and be able to apply the tools and approaches directly to their ongoing research.

There will be a two day workshop on Monday and Tuesday, October 30-31, 2017, 9:00AM-4:30PM, co-sponsored by the UF Informatics Institute and the UF Biodiversity Institute and held at the UFII and UFBI offices.
