"It’s hard for scientists to do the cool things their colleagues are excited about without basic computing skills, and impossible for them to know what other new things are possible. Our ambition is to change that: not just to make scientists more productive today, but to allow them to be part of the changes that are transforming science in front of our eyes." ("Software Carpentry: lessons learned" in F1000 Research).
"We couldn't agree more with these words from Greg Wilson, founder of Software Carpentry (SWC)."
Which is why the Data Management Services group has expanded from hosting its first SWC bootcamp back in January to hosting three more bootcamps this summer. Nearly 100 graduate students, post-docs, and other researchers and instructors attended one of our summer bootcamp events, which were held in conjunction with specific campus groups: the Department of Biophysics, the Stanford Biosciences Student Association, and the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences.
