Have you noticed that you have more data today than you did a year or 5 years ago? Think you will have more in 10 years?
Meghan Duffy (EEB) and I have organized a two day workshop on http://software-carpentry.for women who are interested in developing or strengthening their programming and data analysis skills. This hand-on, example-driven workshop will be offered by trained instructors who are part of an amazing organization called the Software Carpentry Workshop. You can learn more about this organization and their workshops at
org/workshops/. The workshop will cover tools like the bash shell, git, SQL, and R. Through generous support from various groups on campus including ADVANCE, Rackham, and the Med School the workshop will be free. Meghan (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I (email@example.com) are happy to answer any questions. If you are interested, please register on the Eventbrite site:

Feel free to distribute to any women (undergrad to faculty) that you think might be interested.
