Software Carpentry ( 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  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.
