Are you new to the world of Linux, Python, and R? Want to learn strategies for working smarter on Stanford’s HPC systems? We’ve got great news for you! The Research Computing team has rolled out a series of convenient 1-hour classes to help you master programming concepts on our Sherlock and FarmShare coding environments. Whether you are just starting out or a seasoned user of our platforms, these sessions are designed to benefit all.
Lunch & Learn
We’re offering the Lunch & Learn sessions online-only via Zoom. You don’t have to turn your camera on, though, so feel free to eat your lunch while we fill your head!
Each session will dive into a different programming topic. Our intention is to help regular attendees get a well-rounded education. And sessions are not just theoretical; they are hands-on!
Continuing our in-depth training
In addition to the Lunch & Learn series, we’re continuing to offer our more in-depth single-session classes for new and intermediate Sherlock/HPC users. For example, one of our Winter Quarter 2024 sessions — R Basics for Sherlock — taught users to install packages, use RStudio Server, and write an sbatch script.
Feedback from a regular attendee of 2023’s Research Computing classes: “I learned a lot of tips and tricks, as usual.”
Open to all
All of Research Computing’s training opportunities provide the opportunity to level up your computing skills, network with fellow researchers, and get hands-on experience.
To stay up-to-date with the schedule for our workshops and Code & Coffee sessions, be sure to join our announcement and support channels on Slack — or visit the Classes & Support page on the Research Computing website. We look forward to seeing you at a session and helping you enhance your programming expertise.
