  • Introduction to the Unix Shell

    15 - 16 April 2024

    Introduction to the Unix Shell https://dresa.org.au/events/introduction-to-the-unix-shell-67a5887f-3dce-4b0b-8363-42a6bc4572ab The Unix shell has been around longer than most of its users have been alive. It has survived so long because it’s a power tool that allows people to do complex things with just a few keystrokes. More importantly, it helps them combine existing programs in new ways and automate repetitive tasks so they aren’t typing the same things over and over again. Use of the shell is fundamental to using a wide range of other powerful tools and computing resources (including 'high-performance computing' supercomputers). This Software Carpentry workshop will start you on a path towards using these resources effectively. 2024-04-15 09:00:00 UTC 2024-04-16 12:30:00 UTC QCIF QCIF training@qcif.edu.au [] [] workshop open_to_all []

  • Data Visualisation for Research Communication

    23 April 2024

    Data Visualisation for Research Communication https://dresa.org.au/events/data-visualisation-for-research-communication Research communication is much more than just writing journal papers; to maximise the impact of your work, it's vital that you make your research findings accessible and engaging to a wide audience. Data storytelling is a powerful way achieving this, by conveying your ideas in a clear and memorable way. This interactive webinar focuses on developing your data storytelling skills by introducing a range of data visualisation techniques that you can use to combine the three elements of data, visuals and narrative into a meaningful and memorable story. By using these three elements, you can weave a story about your research for an array of audiences, in a way that they will connect with and remember. 2024-04-23 13:30:00 UTC 2024-04-23 15:00:00 UTC QCIF QCIF training@qcif.edu.au [] [] webinar open_to_all []

    Introduction to the Unix Shell https://dresa.org.au/events/introduction-to-the-unix-shell-67a5887f-3dce-4b0b-8363-42a6bc4572ab The Unix shell has been around longer than most of its users have been alive. It has survived so long because it’s a power tool that allows people to do complex things with just a few keystrokes. More importantly, it helps them combine existing programs in new ways and automate repetitive tasks so they aren’t typing the same things over and over again. Use of the shell is fundamental to using a wide range of other powerful tools and computing resources (including 'high-performance computing' supercomputers). This Software Carpentry workshop will start you on a path towards using these resources effectively. 2024-04-15 09:00:00 UTC 2024-04-16 12:30:00 UTC QCIF QCIF training@qcif.edu.au [] [] workshop open_to_all []

  • Data Visualisation for Research Communication

    23 April 2024

    Data Visualisation for Research Communication https://dresa.org.au/events/data-visualisation-for-research-communication Research communication is much more than just writing journal papers; to maximise the impact of your work, it's vital that you make your research findings accessible and engaging to a wide audience. Data storytelling is a powerful way achieving this, by conveying your ideas in a clear and memorable way. This interactive webinar focuses on developing your data storytelling skills by introducing a range of data visualisation techniques that you can use to combine the three elements of data, visuals and narrative into a meaningful and memorable story. By using these three elements, you can weave a story about your research for an array of audiences, in a way that they will connect with and remember. 2024-04-23 13:30:00 UTC 2024-04-23 15:00:00 UTC QCIF QCIF training@qcif.edu.au [] [] webinar open_to_all []
