Introduce scientists and PhD students to a powerful toolset to enhance their research software workflow.


A Software Carpentry workshop is conceptualized as a two-day event that covers the basic tools required for a research software workflow:

  • The Shell as a foundation for the following tools
  • Employing Git as version control system (VCS)
  • Introduction into the Python programming language

Details and workshop materials can also be found directly at the Software Carpentries’ lessons overview.


Neither prior knowledge nor experience in those tools is needed. Participants are asked to bring their own computer on which they can install software. It is recommended to read and follow the instructions on how to set up the tools for the workshop before the event.


The registration period is over.
