Hi All,

There's a Software Carpentry (SC) workshop set up for the 2 days just 
before BIS TDWG 2016. It's an opportunity to see what SC is all about 
and for anyone attending to stretch or enhance their data skills a bit. 
You can read about the course content on the course wiki:


> Core topics include:
>   * automating tasks using the Unix shell
>   * structured programming in Python, R, or MATLAB, and
>   * version control using Git or Mercurial
> We plan to offer an additional half-day of training focused on using 
> the big data available from the iDigBio <http://www.idigbio.org> 
> project. This may include programming with web APIs, distributed 
> computation with Apache Spark, or similar topics.

There are still some slots left. So if you, or perhaps a student you 
know who is going to attend BIS TDWG 2016, please pass along news about 
this opportunity.
