Northwestern University

Featured Workshop

The Molecular Sciences Software Institute (MolSSI) is an NSF-funded institute whose goals are to improve software, education, and training in the computational molecular sciences. The MolSSI will offer a scientific programming workshop at the ACS Great Lakes Regional Meeting designed for undergraduate students who are currently involved in, or planning to start computational chemistry research. This workshop is designed to help students develop practical programming skills that will benefit their undergraduate research, and will take students through introductory programming and scripting with Python to version control and sharing their code with others. NO prior programming experience is required.


The workshop will cover topics such as:

-    Reading and writing files

-    File manipulation and parsing

-    Analyzing and graphing data

-    Creating command line programs from Python scripts

-    Basic troubleshooting

-    Version control with git

-    Sharing code on GitHub

Interested attendees should complete this short form!
