Events: SFU Scientific Programming Study Group

July 11, 2016

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. All are welcome to this study group, regardless of scientific research area, affiliation or training level.

The group provides a space for scientists and researchers to get together, share coding skills, and help each other out with the programming they have to do as part of their research.

SFU's Scientific Programming Group is holding a number of workshops this summer cover topics from the "Basics of Wordpress" to "Parallel Computing" and everything in between. Please visit their website for full details on all the events going on this summer.
