Category Internal trainings
Are you a Python or R user? Learn how to share your research code in a reproducible and interactive way using mybinder.org

This one day workshop will help you get your Github repository "binder ready", getting data in and out, how to use RStudio or C++, and you get to ask the Binder team anything (this was by far the most popular part at the last workshop). The morning will be a guided tour and instructed session on getting everyone to make their first binder. The afternoon sessions are dedicated to breakouts on topics set by the participants of the workshop. In the past people who wanted to achieve similar things formed groups to work on that together.

The event is free but spaces are limited and registration is required here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfXZYqB2HVSD3Slc45Tw095iFbIcP3FmhCUNeGnyl23c6bZnQ/viewform

Lunch, coffee, tea and soft drinks will be provided thanks to generous support from the Mozilla Foundation
