CoderSpaces Speaker Series
Join our weekly talks in November 2021
Come join the CoderSpaces hosts during the month of November as we share our expertise! Our presenting hosts are a team of ITS Advanced Research Computing (ARC) and Consulting for Statistics, Computing & Analytics Research (CSCAR) consultants, faculty and post-docs, as well as research support staff originating from different research cores at the university.
In this short speaker series, we will introduce you to some of our favorite programming tools, tell you about the resources we support at the university, and showcase the types of work we do. The talks cover advanced research computing, reproducible research practices, workflows, data pipelines, and machine learning applications. Each talk will be about 30 minutes in length followed by a chance to chat with the speaker and learn more. Check out the line up below.
CoderSpaces are weekly virtual research support sessions designed to assist faculty, staff, and students with research methodology, statistics, data science applications, and computational programming. Our hosts have a wide set of methodological and technological expertise. They come to you from a variety of departments and disciplines and are looking forward to serving the U-M community in their research endeavors. CoderSpaces provide a casual, productive and inclusive environment. Everyone is welcome regardless of skill level.
