Registration for this boot camp will be restricted to bioinformaticians. We may accept applicants from outside this target audience if space permits.
Instructors: Ben Morris, Philipp Bayer
What: The bootcamp will run over three full days and consist of a series of short informal "lectures" and longer hands-on sessions with opportunities for building networks and collaborations. The bootcamp will cover topics around the theme of good programming practices. Many of the concepts covered are exemplified using Python. As such, the first part of day one teaches/orientates the trainees in Python programming concepts. The second day teaches concepts of writing tests to demonstrate the behaviour of the code is as designed/expected as well as the use of version control. The final day is about putting your newfound skills into practice!
Who: This boot camp is aimed at bioinformaticians and computational biologists. As such, attendees will be expected to have working knowledge of a UNIX/Linux operating system and be competent in at least one programming/scripting language.
Requirements: No need to bring a laptop; we'll provide computers and a Virtual Machine (VM) on which you will be working. Lunch and morning and afternoon tea/coffee/food will also be provided.
