About

Digital skills workshops

Our programme focuses on the foundational digital skills needed to put reproducible research into practice. The workshops we run cover the essentials of version control, online collaboration, reproducible code and good programming practices. Further, we often cover intermediate and advanced technologies, or method-specific skills, such as GPU and Parallel Programming and Deep Learning.

Workshops

Technology weeks

The eScience Center organizes hands-on workshop weeks (like this one) that stimulate the use of digital technologies in research. Mentored by a group of eScience Center experts, small research groups explore the application of new technologies and digital methods based on their own research problems and datasets.


Our instructors

All courses are taught by Research Software Engineers from the eScience Center, in-house experts with in-depth instructional and technical skills, and extensive teaching experience. Our instructors are certified Carpentries Instructors, and members of the international Carpentries community.

Our Instructors

Training materials

Digital Skills Workshops are based on tried and tested high-quality materials from Software, Data Carpentry and Code Refinery, as well as materials developed by our team at the eScience Center. All materials are collaboratively developed with the research community and are freely available.
