9:00 AM - 2:00 PM
SSRI-Gross Hall 230E
Julia is a new programming language for numerical computing that aims to combine the flexibility of dynamic languages like Python or Matlab with the speed of Fortran or C. In this short course, we will introduce the basics of Julia programming with hands-on examples, give an overview of the Julia ecosystem for simulation and data analysis, and point out common pitfalls for those coming from other dynamic languages (R, Python, Matlab). We will focus on what makes Julia different from other scientific or technical programming languages and discuss where the language is headed in the future. To make the most use of this course, participants should ideally have a basic understanding of another programming or scripting language so that programming concepts are familiar from the beginning of the course. A lunch break will be scheduled during the workshop, and lunch will be provided for participants. Registration required; please click "more information" to access the registration form.

This workshop offers an overview of the SAS programming language, focusing on data management activities. Session 1 includes a general overview of major SAS components (Program Editor, Log and Output) and the core concepts of SAS programming (DATA and PROC steps). It focuses on the process of importing and modifying data, including issues of importing/exporting data from other file formats, merging and concatenating data sets, and adding to or subsettting from datasets. Key SAS statements described include: PROC IMPORT, SET, MERGE, IF-THEN, and WHERE. Session 2 focuses on data analysis, including variable creation/recoding and descriptive analyses typically used in data management. Key SAS statements described include: PROC CONTENTS, PROC MEANS, and PROC FREQ. Together, these two sessions allow researchers to learn basic data management processes using the SAS statistical system.

Consent, Data Sharing and Data Reuse

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2017-03-21 17:00
Perkins 217
West Campus

Research involving humans requires multiple approaches to protect participants’ anonymity. If you are planning to (or are required to) share your human subjects’ data outside of your original project team, or plan to re-use data you collected previously for a new research project, you will need to design a consent form/consent protocol that properly addresses these situations.  This workshop will present various research scenarios with examples of how consent protocol should be developed.  If available, a staff member of the Duke Office of Research Support will be on hand to answer questions.

Serving and Scraping Data with the OpenAPI Project

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2017-03-21 14:00
Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

The latest trends in application programming interfaces (APIs) make it possible to share data more easily than ever before. In this session, we'll take a look at the OpenAPI Project (formerly known as Swagger). We'll start with a brief discussion of the OpenAPI approach, then we'll look at free tools and software to help you get started. From there, we'll go through a quick demo of describing an API and looking at code that uses the API to both serve data and consume it. We'll also take a quick look at open technologies to share data sets and the code that produces them so that anyone can replicate your results. We'll wrap up with a discussion of the API economy and ways to publicize and manage your the APIs you create. The speaker is Doug Tidwell of IBM.
