Software Carpentry

Helping scientists make better software since 1997

Software Carpentry Screencasts by Chris Lasher

Chris Lasher, a grad student at the University of Virginia Virginia Tech (sorry, sorry), has posted some screencasts about version control based on the Software Carpentry notes at; a second series about using the shell should be up shortly. It’s just plain cool to see the material picked up and carried forward in ways I wouldn’t even have thought of a couple of years ago.

Later: now there’s, the Journal of Visual Experiments, and others — the world moves on.

  1. Hi Greg. Thanks for the post. I am indeed working on Chris’ second (Ubuntu Shell) series, I should have it published this morning.

    It is great to hear that you like our approach, we’d like to make it easier for people to share their hard-won knowledge.

    Obviously this takes more effort for the author and more effort for us (as Filters) but the results rather speak for themselves…we’re proud of what we’re creating here.

    Thanks for the encouraging words, and do note that we’re always open to new submissions,

    Ian (co-founder, author)
