Below you will find the listing of workshops offered by Center for Social Science Computation and Research (CSSCR) during the first part of the quarter.

We are developing a few new workshops given we have a set of new consultants this year with new programming talents but we will still continue to offer our old standby courses as well.

As always, registration is open and free to anyone in the UW community. Please let your colleagues, staff, and students know by sharing this newsletter. Individuals can subscribe to the newsletter here, and our newsletter archive is found here.
