About the Data Skills Boot Camp

The Data Skills Boot Camp takes places over two full days. It will be taught by Data Carpentry instructors and aims to help researchers get their work done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic research computing skills. This hands-on workshop will cover basic concepts and tools, including program design, version control, data management, and task automation.

Below are the dates, times, and locations for the Data Skills Boot Camps, along with links to the Registration Form (which includes a Pre-Boot Camp assessment component that will help us better serve the needs of attendees). Seating is limited to the first 30 graduate students who register.  If it turns out you are unable to attend, please let us know one week in advance so that your seat can be given to someone on the waiting list. 

* Please note that this Boot Camp will be recorded and the recording made available online to anyone unable to attend in person. By registering for this Boot Camp, you are agreeing to the possibility of being part of this recording.

If you have any questions about the Data Skills Boot Camp, please contact Bonnie Fong (
