Together with the advancement of new tools and techniques, and the availability of large datasets in different research domains, a solid understanding of common scripting languages and version control systems is becoming more and more important for many researchers. Having the knowledge and skills on how to use tools and techniques to analyze data efficiently, to preserve research output and to collaborate with peers benefit every research domain. So its important to close the gap between researchers and the know-how for new tools and techniques. Software Carpentry aims to provided this support. It is an interactive workshop including sessions from concepts to practice on topics that can be used in many research domain. The sessions are organized in a friendly environment, where people can learn from each other and share experience. Participants also get support throughout the whole sessions.
