The SFU Scientific Programming Study Group is a student run study group that meets weekly and provides a space for students to collaborate on the usage of computers in aiding scientific research. This can cover everything from DNA sequencing, statistical analysis, and using coding to handle basic computer tasks.

As described by its founding members Tiffany Timbers, Bruno Grande and Thea Van Rossum below.

There is a new study group at SFU for scientists and researchers to get together, share coding skills, and help each other out with the programming many of us have to do as part of our research. I think we could all learn a lot and make some new connections by working together on this. 

Most study sessions will consist of an hour-long tutorial, where one member of our community will demonstrate a tool, package or some other useful computer skill. We have a website listing the first few sessions we plan to have; check it out! http://ttimbers.github.io/studyGroup/

If you're interested, please take the short survey below. We are committed to reflecting what the community wants, so please be vocal!
