Data Science Hub

The Data Science Hub collect a larger set of training material list on: datascience.wisc.edu/training-resources/ that also include workshops offered as Software Carpentry or Data Carpentry options.

Most workshops are offered online.

The easiest way to be informed is to subscribe to their newsletter.

Coding Meet-up

A very useful option is the free Coding Meetup help: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 2:30–4:30 p.m. CT.

Come to Coding Meetup to ask questions about tools you learn about, how to apply coding tools to your work, troubleshoot coding bugs, or anything else related to your data or code. We also welcome additional helpers at Coding Meetup, if you’d like to help answer questions that come up.
