Edinburgh Carpentries: Free data skills workshops

This free two-day online workshop will introduce the computational skills needed for data management and data analysis. The workshop covers Data Cleaning with Spreadsheets and OpenRefine and Data analysis with R, for a total of 12 hours across two days. For more detailed information on the workshop see here.

The workshop model is based on Data Carpentry, which is a community of certified instructors who teach workshops, and contributors who maintain lesson materials. The instructors come from a range of backgrounds with sound experience in dealing with data.

This is an introductory-level workshop. The target audience for this workshop is learners who have little to no prior computational experience. We create a friendly learning environment to empower you and enable data-driven good practice. The workshops are highly interactive and hands-on.

The platform used will be Zoom. Once your inscription is approved you will receive an email including a link and instructions on how to join. Data Carpentry workshops are normally taught in person , but most of us have significant experience with online teaching and collaboration. In these new circumstances, we will need to take extra care, and we will ask you for extra attention, so that everyone’s experience is positive and fruitful.

This workshop is part of the Data Skills Workforce Development, and we are able to offer 20 places free of charge due to funding from the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) Upskilling Fund. These funded places are available to those who meet one of the following Scottish Funding Council (SFC) fee-waiver criteria:

• living in Scotland or the rest of the EU (except England, Wales and Northern Ireland) for the last three years for reasons other than education.

• working for a Scottish employer (an employer which is based in or has a significant presence in Scotland)

Please note that full-time students are not eligible.
