UCSF Programming Workshop: Beginning R or Python

Sat, May 20, 2017, 9:00 AM – Sun, May 21, 2017, 5:00 PM PDT

UCSF Mission Hall Room 1406/1407
550 16th Street, San Francisco, CA 94158

Course Overview
This event, brought to you by the UCSF Library Data Science Initiative and UCSF Institute for Computational Health Sciences, is an example-driven two-day workshop that introduces the basics of R or Python, Git, and the Unix Shell. Short tutorials alternate with hands-on practical exercises, and participants are encouraged both to help one another, and to try applying what they have learned to their own research problems during and between sessions.


This two-day workshop will run May 20-21, 9am-5pm each day. We will be running two concurrent bootcamps meaning both workshops are happening at the same time and you should register for either the R workshop or the Python workshop. Only sign up for one workshop. The schedule generally follows the format:

Day 1

Day 2

Coffee and snacks will be provided.
