Introduction to Jupyter Notebooks
Aug 19 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Facilitated by Dr. Sara King, eResearch Analyst at AARNet, this workshop will introduce you to Jupyter Notebooks, a digital tool that has exploded in popularity in recent years for those working with data.

You will learn what they are, what they do and why you might like to use them. It is an introductory set of lessons for those who are brand new, have little or no knowledge of coding and computational methods in research. By the end of the workshop you will have a good understanding of what Notebooks can do, how to open one up, perform some basic tasks and save it for later. If you are really into it, you will also be able to continue to experiment after the workshop by using other people’s notebooks as springboards for your own adventures!

This workshop is targeted at those who are absolute beginners or ‘tech-curious’. It includes a hands-on component, using basic programming commands, but requires no previous knowledge of programming.

Please check that you have access to cloudstor.aarnet.edu.au . If you do not have Cloudstor access you can still attend, just advise the trainer beforehand so arrangements can be made.

The workshop is ~3 hours (including breaks). We’ll have coffee, tea and biscuits available.

Bring your own laptop! We will have some laptops available for those who don’t have one along.

Crafternoon: Visible Mending

Crafternoon: Visible Mending @ Curtin Library Makerspace | Bentley | Western Australia | Australia

Mending is #trending. For centuries people have mended their garments, and many have become quite good at repairing items so the original flaw is completely unnoticeable. But that’s not what we’ll be doing! We’ll be partaking in the practice of “visible mending” where you repair your items with noticeable stitches and often other patterned fabric. Bring in your torn jeans, your holey sweater, or your ripped t-shirt, and turn it into something unique and wearable once more!

Mending your clothes gives them new life, and delays your clothing from ending up in landfill. It’s a win-win!
