    New Matlab and Software Carpentry dates and help with your dissertation

    By Caroline Norris, on 29 June 2017

    Develop-text-summer-photofunia-crop2It’s the summer holidays but there are still opportunities to develop your digital skills this July and August.

    Places are still available on our two-day Matlab course on 20 and 21 July.  If you are interested, visit the UCL training booking system to find out more and book a place.

    Need help with your dissertation?  We are running two drop-in clinics on 8 and 21 August from 2 – 5 p.m.  There is no need to book, just turn up.  If the session is busy you may need to wait to be seen so bring something to do.  Staff can help with formatting your disseration and bibliographic referencing using Word, LaTeX, NatBib, Endnote and Zotero.  Location details will be provided on our drop in page and please check the page before travelling to a session in case any details have changed.

    Research IT Services are running their ever-popular Software Carpentry  on 25 and 26 July.  This intensive course is designed to help researchers  become more productive by teaching them basic computing skills like program design, version control, testing, and task automation using Unix, SQL, Python and Git. Visit the UCL training booking system to find out more and book a place.

    Finally, don’t forget, wherever you are this summer you always have access to a vast range of high-quality video-based courses from Lynda.com and you can even download content to view offline. There are videos covering technical skills but also business, personal and creative skills as well.  Visit the UCL Lynda.com page to find out more.  We also have a range of technology-focused online courses available from Microsoft Imagine Academy
