    Submitted by Vijayaraj Nagarajan; posted on Wednesday, March 06, 2019

    April 23-26, 2019

    OBJECTIVES

    Participants will get a brief introduction to the programming concepts, followed by hands-on walkthrough for writing scripts using the Unix Shell Programming Language, R, Perl and Python. We will start from reading the data, processing it and all the way until saving the processed data. This training will walk through participants in writing programs that would help them solve their own problems.

    BACKGROUND

    Computer programs are meant to perform repeated, monotonous, fast, reproducible tasks, handling any amount of data. Researchers often come across situations where existingprograms don't suit their needs. In the era of BigData, without the ability to quickly put together aprogram that would solve their problem, researchers face a road block that is not efficientlysolvable by a human.This training will walk through participants in writing programs that wouldhelp them solve their own problems.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    • Participants will work in a Unix environment.
    • Participants will get a copy of all the scripts used in the class.
    • Participants will also receive a cookbook style manual for all the hands-on exercises.
    • After training support is also provided through exclusive members only forum.
