Foundations for Research Computing provides informal training for Columbia University graduate students and postdoctoral scholars to develop fundamental skills for harnessing computation: core languages and libraries, software development tools, best practices, and computational problem-solving. Topics are covered from across the spectrum, from beginner to advanced. Beyond training, the Foundations program aims to create a computational community at Columbia, bringing disparate researchers together with the common thread of computation.
