Data Science Training Camp at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution: Syllabus and slide presentations in 2020

Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 

With data and software increasingly recognized as scholarly research products, and aiming towards open science and reproducibility, it is imperative for today's oceanographers to learn foundational practices and skills for data management and research computing, as well as practices specific to the ocean sciences. This educational package was developed as a data science training camp for graduate students and professionals in the ocean sciences and implemented at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in 2019 and 2020. Here we provide materials for the 2020 camp.  Contents of this package include the syllabus and slide presentations for each of the four modules:
1 "Good enough practices in scientific computing,"
2 Data management,
3 Software development and research computing,
and 4 Best practices in the ocean sciences.
The 3rd module is split into two parts. We also include a poster presented at the 2020 Ocean Science Meeting, which has some results from pre- and post-surveys.
