DVS Workshop: Building Blocks for Reproducibility: GitHub and GitLab

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2018-10-16 14:00
Bostock Library 023
(Library Classroom)
In response to a growing focus on the importance of reproducibility, replication, and transparency in the research endeavor, scholars are adapting their practices and learning new skills and tools. DVS is offering a workshop series that will introduce the concepts, practices and tools that will help increase the reproducibility of your work.GitHub and GitLab are social coding platforms which enable collaboration. Built upon the Git (version control) framework these tools make social coding and code sharing more accessible. Learn how to create branches, create remote repositories, leverage the GitHub/GitLab interface for simpler "reverts", and collaborate with others. To fully participate in this workshop, please bring your own laptop. This workshop requires that you have already configured RStudio with Git, a topic covered on Sept. 25. Prerequisite: RStudio and Git. All attendees are expected to be familiar with the R Studio environment (See Intro to R).

He also chairs the Department of Religious Studies at Duke. Panelists include: Jennifer W. Knust, Professor, Department of Religion, Boston Univeristy Justin McDaniel, Professor, Department of Religious Studies, University of Pennsylvania Alicia Jiménez, Assistant Professor, Department of Classical Studies, Duke University Thomas Robisheaux, Professor, Department of History, Duke University Faculty Bookwatch celebrates and promotes interdisciplinary conversations on major recent books by Duke humanities or interpretative social sciences faculty.

DVS Workshop: Map Design

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Thu, 2018-10-11 17:30
Bostock Library 023
(Library Classroom)
Making maps is a creative rather than a purely technical process. Even if you can expertly use the latest and most advanced tools, you still have to make design decisions based on your specific audience, data, and goals. This workshop will present an overview of concepts in cartography and provide practical techniques for creating effective, visually appealing maps. We will explore design principles by analyzing plenty of examples. No specific software experience or GIS knowledge is required.

DVS Workshop: Tidy Data in Python with JupyterLab

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Thu, 2018-10-11 13:00
Bostock Library 023
(Library Classroom)
Python can be a great option for exploration, analysis and visualization of tabular data, like spreadsheets and CSV files, if you know which tools to use and how to get started. This workshop will take you through some practical examples of using Python and the Pandas module to load data, transform it into a standard "tidy" format, and visualize it with Seaborn (or another similar module). We will also introduce you to working in JupyterLab, the exiting new flexible programming environment which will eventually replace Jupyter Notebooks. There are no prerequisites for this workshop - familiarity with the Python programming language is not required, but you will probably find it easier to follow if you have a little coding experience since we will not be giving an overview of the language itself. Instead, the focus will be on learning how to use the language through conceptual understanding and recipes for specific, commonly-useful tasks.
