Abstract:The first ever Software Carpentry workshop will be organized by IDRACK and the  Khwarizmi Science Society in collaboration with the Centre of Excellence in Solid State Physics, University of Punjab, Lahore. IDRACK is a non-profit organization and is currently introducing software carpentry in Pakistan. The niche in which IDRACK works is scientific communication and awareness  with a special emphasis on women in STEM. Currently, it is working in the area of scientific programming and introducing the research community in Pakistan to this practice to bring the quality of research at par with the  developed world. Objectives: This workshop is being organised with two objectives in mind:
  1. To introduce Software Carpentry in Pakistan and encourage people to become instructors and join a global community.
  2. To expose people with just enough know-how to integrate computational work with their current research work.
The workshop  will be led by Ashar Malik from IDRACK who is also affiliated with Software Carpentry Community. He will be training the researchers so that they can continue this chain of research training in other institutions/cities as well. Some indication regarding the content to be delivered on these two days (27th and 28th) can be obtained from the schedule below.
