SciCoder 6 Workshop



The increasing amount of astronomical data being generated has required researchers to develop significant computer and programming experience to effectively analyze this information.

The SciCoder workshop is designed to introduce the young researcher to modern programming practices, languages, and tools as specifically applicable to scientific research. These skills will enable participants to write better code, write code faster, and leverage more tools than astronomers are typically introduced to or are aware of. An emphasis will be placed on the rich variety of open source software available. (Feel free to insert the words “big data”, “data science”, and/or “astroinformatics” to taste.)

Please note that we are strictly limiting the number of participants to a small number to provide a personalized, hands-on experience.
