This session will introduce participants to The Turing Way book project, its ethos and how to get involved in the community.
The Turing Way is an open-source, community-led, and collaboratively developed project on making data science and research skills accessible, comprehensible, and beneficial for a wider research community. We bring together individuals from diverse fields and expertise to develop practices and learning resources that can make data research comprehensible and useful for everyone. These resources are organised as an online book with over 250 chapters across five guides on reproducibility, project design, collaboration, communication and ethics in research. All questions, comments, recommendations, and discussions are facilitated through an online GitHub repository.
You can attend in person or online (via Microsoft Teams). Please click 'Register for this event' to register your attendance on Eventbrite with your preferred attendance type.
