Training Opportunities

Workshops and Trainings

The University of Wisconsin-Madison has a long-standing relationship with The Carpentries, a global organization of researchers who volunteer their time and effort to create workshops that teach software engineering and data analysis skills to other researchers.

The tools taught include the Unix shell, Git/GitHub, Python, R, SQL, OpenRefine, and Docker. Some of the subject area focuses for these workshops are geospatial, health sciences, ecology, social sciences, genomics, and the humanities.

The Data Science Hub can also develop trainings customized for specific classes and labs.

Campus Data Science Trainings

Previous Workshops


Since January 2019, the Data Science Hub has been carrying on the tradition of hosting these workshops on the UW-Madison campus that the Advanced Computing Initiative started in April 2013. Research Computing Facilitators from the Center for High Throughput Computing have also been key in developing the Carpentries community at UW-Madison. See a complete list of past workshops here.
