We know it's summer, but we're already excited about our Fall 2019 workshop series! We've been expanding our content into multi-part series and increasing our coordination over the last few semesters and are pleased to offer multiple workshop series next fall, including:
Using R: introduction to R and RStudio, data wrangling, and visualization; introduction to R and RStudio, a dive in to Census data, and working with Census data in R/tidycensus; and a two-part Bayesian Data Analysis in R
Using Python: introduction to Python, using Python with APIs to acquire data, and visualization
Scientific workflow tools: using the command line and Unix shell, using Git and GitHub for version control and collaboration, research data management practices to make data findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable, writing and collaborating in LaTeX and Overleaf, and making the most of funding discovery tools
Tableau and data visualization: basics of data visualization and make visualizations in Tableau
Creating surveys: principles of survey development and building surveys in Qualtrics
Writing management tools: Zotero for citation management, using advanced features in Zotero, working with long documents in MS Word, and writing and collaborating in LaTeX and Overleaf
Additional data topics: working with data in Excel, using QGIS - a free and open source software platform for spatial data, qualitative data analysis and Dedoose, and understanding and using Census data products
Find the full list on our webpage and register on the Library's events page. And look for additional content later this summer – we're still planning. As always, all are welcome!
ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research
Looking for a quantitative methods summer program closer to Charlottesville? The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill was the first university to offer joint workshops with the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) outside of Ann Arbor, Michigan. The Odum Institute will continue this tradition by offering the joint Odum Institute/ICPSR summer program courses.
Our Fall workshops are several months away, but our colleagues in Advanced Research Computing are hosting a summer education series: Would you like to learn the basics of high-throughput and parallel computing? Do you want hands-on high performance training that you can apply to your research? If so, then we invite you to attend one or more sessions in ARCS' Summer Education Series. The sessions are free for all UVA faculty, staff, and students. Topics include how to program in Python, scientific visualization, modern Fortran, data analytics, MPI for distributed systems, OpenMP for multicore systems, and more!
