Dearest Predocs: The MPG has agreed to work with The Carpentries to train members of the Scientific Computing Facilities in several different MPIs. The point is that these experienced and expert programmers can help pass their knowledge along! I've lanced this initiative so that it will be eventually available to other IMPRS, but seeing as we're doing the work, we're also likely to first reap the benefits :) .
I need your help, however: Please tell me what sort of courses you'd like!
Something missing? You can look here https://carpentries.org/community-lessons/ . Do note that these will be MPG-wide courses, so courses extremely specific to your research are unlikely to be chosen.
