Bostock Library - The Edge Workshop Room
First Floor
Scientists work with lots of data both big and small, and in many formats and systems. This workshop will introduce data management practices for scientists to consider and apply throughout the research lifecycle. Good data management practices pertaining to planning, organization, documentation, storage and backup, sharing, citation, and preservation will be presented through a sciences lens using discipline-based, concrete examples. During the workshop, participants will also engage in discussions with their peers on data management concepts as well as learn about one specific tool as a method to assess how tools can enable specific data management practices. The tool explored in this workshop will be GitHub - a robust version control tool.

Radio Haïti-Inter: Three Decades of Resistance Opening Reception

Thu, 2020-02-27 23:00
Rubenstein Arts Center, Studio 129
Join us in celebrating the opening of Radio Haïti-Inter: Three Decades of Resistance. Curator Laura Wagner will offer brief remarks at 6:30pm, and Leyla McCalla and Kiyoko McCrae will be in attendance (on the first night of their residency leading up to their Duke Performances premiere!). Radio Haïti-Inter: Three Decades of Resistance tells the story of how Radio Haïti-Inter persevered in the face of government repression during dictatorship, military rule, and the democratic era. Under the leadership of Jean Dominique and Michèle Montas, Radio Haiti was a voice of social change and democracy, speaking out against oppression and impunity while advocating for human rights and celebrating Haitian culture and heritage. Dominique was assassinated on April 3, 2000 amid a climate of mounting violence against Haiti's free press. This exhibit and immersive audio experience coincide with the Duke Performances premiere of Breaking the Thermometer to Hide the Fever and the twentieth anniversary of the assassination of station director Jean Dominique.

CDVS Workshop: Mapping in Tableau

Wed, 2020-02-26 18:00
Bostock Library 023
(Library Classroom)
Tableau is a software package that is increasingly popular for creating striking visualizations, such as charts and graphs, from tabular data. It also has an increasing number of capabilities to create maps. Source data can include native geospatial files (such as shapefiles or GeoJSON files), but also tabular data (such as CSV or Excel files) that include locational values, such as place names or coordinate data. This workshop will cover how to create maps in Tableau and on ways to manipulate the data and to effectively symbolize it on a map.
