Software Carpentry (http://software-carpentry.org) has been teaching
scientists and engineers the concepts, skills, and tools they need to
use and build software more productively since 1997.  This year, we
will run an intensive two-day workshop for new graduate students at
the University of Toronto during the fall mid-term break.  Topics to
be covered include:

* the Unix shell
* version control
* basic programming in Python
* using databases with SQL
* how to test software
* and one other topic to be chosen by students' votes

Participation is free, but as we only have 40 spaces, please register
early at http://swcbootcamp2011.eventbrite.com/.  If you later find
that you are unable to attend, please take a moment to remove yourself
from the list so that someone else can take your place.
