Software

We build tools to make doing science easier and more efficient by automating the early phases of the data analysis pipeline.

  • Data Retriever: A package manager for data. It downloads, cleans, and stores publicly available data, so analysts spend less time managing data, and more time analyzing it. Available for Python, R, Julia, and the command line.
  • portalr: Quickly download, clean, and work with data from the Portal Project.

Teaching

We are actively involved in training scientists in both ideas and tools.

  • Software and Data Carpentry Workshops
  • University of Florida R Meetup
  • Data Carpentry for Biologists (semester long course)
  • Biodiversity
  • Ecological Dynamics and Forecasting
