Registration Open for Winter Boot Camp

Student working on laptopThe Center for Integrated Research Computing (CIRC) will be hosting a six-week program to help students, postdocs, research staff, and faculty learn new programming languages and sharpen their computing and data analytics skills. The classes are designed for beginners and will cover basic topics to give enough direction to move on to self-learning tutorials or other more advanced coursework.

Each language or topic is an individual module that will take place during 90-minute lectures over 4 days. The lectures are designed to integrate with the existing student class schedules for convenience. Exercises will be assigned between each lecture, so each attendee has time to work independently on programming tasks. Participants are expected to attend each lecture over the four days that the module is offered. Each programming module is independent, and participants may sign up for one or more modules.

The classes will be taught in the VISTA Collaboratory, located on the first floor of Carlson Library. Classes start on January 26 and continue through March 5.
