Software carpentry

So this week myself and a few colleagues headed up to Newcastle university for a free course run by software carpentry.

All of us had done some programming in a variety of programming languages but bringing everyone up to speed on aspects of python and version control were really useful.

More information on the course is available from here.

We also had the fortune/misfortune of visiting the Bacchus pub (awesome) although the quality and abundance of beer did make coding the following morning a little less pleasant that it should have been.
