At UF Research Computing we strive to make our resources accessible, efficient, and easy to use. An important part of the effective research computing is the knowledge of how to apply the many available tools in a productive and efficient manner. The comprehensive and clear documentation, well-structured training, and individual help that we provide are all means of achieving that goal. We run a series of training sessions and tutorials during each semester of the school year and in the Summer.
Please see the schedule of training sessions and other Research Computing events below. Please check the calendar before a session as the schedule may change.
