Library Carpentry


If you find the lessons in The Programming Historian a little too technical, you might take a look at the Library Carpentry website.  This lists actual in-person classes but also provides online lessons for librarians trying to wrestle their data into submission.  It includes a set of basic introductions to topics such as spreadsheets that all scholars will find helpful when embarking on a digital or computer-aided project.

Lessons include an introduction to Data, using Git and GitHub, an introduction to Python and (my favorite) "tidy data."
