The classes are designed for beginners and will cover basic topics to give enough direction to move on to self-learning tutorials or other more advanced coursework. Each language or topic is an individual ¿module,¿ that will take place during 1.5 hour lectures over 4 days. The lectures are designed to integrate with the existing student class schedules for convenience. Exercises will be assigned between each lecture, so each attendee has time to work independently on programming tasks. Participants are expected to attend each lecture over the 4 days that the module is offered. Each programming module is independent, and participants may sign up for one or more modules (i.e. languages to learn).HSCCI VISTA Collaboratory, Carlson Library (1st floor)false14223024000002015-01-26T15:00:0014255958000002015-03-05T17:50:00Other2015/01/circ-winter-boot-camp-1.htmltrueOnceData Science Webinar Series: Michael Franklinf3b1ba4fac19042a6577e8ceb5b33852Michael Franklin of UC Berkeley COmputer Science will be presenting "Big Data, Data Science, and other Buzzwords that Really Matter"false14218578000002015-01-21T11:30:0014218614000002015-01-21T12:30:00Talks2015/01/data-sci-webinar-series.htmltrueOnceProf. David Schwab: Deconstructing Collective Neural Activity with Hidden Variablesf3bc632bac19042a6577e8ce623768aeProf. David Schwab of Northwestern University will be presenting "Deconstructing Collective Neural Activity with Hidden Variables"Bausch and Lomb Lobbyfalse14218722000002015-01-21T15:30:0014218776000002015-01-21T17:00:00Talks2015/01/david-schwab-talk.htmltrueOnce2015 Spring Colloquium with Sally W.
