A SESYNC Data Skills Workshop provides researchers from the socio-environmental synthesis community with hands-on training in open source tools for collaborative coding, data management, analysis, visualization, and dissemination. The goal of this one-day workshop is to introduce novice and intermediate scientific coders to concepts, skills and approaches for data-driven research, while relying on tools available through the RStudio development environment. The agenda provides an overview of the specific topics we will address through a series of four lessons that integrate live-coding and trainee challenge exercises. Registration is open to graduate students and researchers working in the biological sciences at the University of Maryland’s College of Computer, Mathematical and Natural Sciences (CMNS).
