*Need Help with Data Wrangling? SESYNC’s Summer Institute Can Help!*

The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) invites
applications for a four-day short course on data and software skills for
socio-environmental synthesis. The fourth annual Summer Institute will be
held *July 18-21* at SESYNC in Annapolis, Maryland. The short course will
combine lectures, hands-on computer labs, and project consultation designed
to accelerate the adoption of cyber resources for all phases of data-driven
research and dissemination.

Over the four-day course, participants will receive instruction on
scripting complete data pipelines and implementing distributed workflows
within the RStudio development environment. Individual lessons will focus
on widely applicable data skills (i.e. data wrangling, relational
databases, GIS and data visualization) and programming languages such as *R,
Python, and JavaScript*.

 Through this short course, participants should expect to:

   - learn new scientific computing skills
   - overcome project hurdles
   - gain coding confidence
   - have fun

*Programming Basics (Optional Fifth-Day)*

Participants with no scientific computing experience will be encouraged to
arrive on *Monday, July 17* for beginner lessons introducing the R
programming language.

*Apply by April 25!*
