OpenAstronomy: Software carpentry

OpenAstronomy is a collaboration between many astronomy focused open source projects. Workshops run by OpenAstronomy use the excellent Software Carpentry curriculum for the first two days, which is designed to help scientists and engineers get more research done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic lab skills for scientific computing. The rest of the workshop is more astronomy and solar physics focused, covering tools specific to doing research in these fields. The course is aimed at graduate students and other researchers.

In the first two days we will cover the all the tools required in modern scientific research. The thrid day will be a shorter day with discussions on open source science and contributing to software packges. The second two days will be focused on handling astrophysical data sets in Python. The focus will be on SunPy and Astropy, however the skills learnt here are extremely transferable.
