LaTeX is a free document creation alternative to MS Word which specializes in the creation of professional documents such as journal articles, theses, books, and scientific or technical reports. LaTeX is the standard for writing in many STEM fields and offers advantages for managing references, typesetting maths, inserting graphics and figures, and much more. In this workshop, we will set up a thesis document using the U of T thesis class.

By the end of the session, participants will be able to actions such as:

- install / use the ut-thesis class
- set up a large thesis document
- manage references using biblatex*
- create complex tables and figures*
- typeset more advanced math*
- add chemical equations and diagrams*
- draw a simple diagram using tikz*
- import & highlight code*

* select topics will be decided depending on interest.

Previous knowledge of LaTeX is highly recommended.

This workshop will take place via Zoom and will be taught by PhD student, Jesse Knight.

In an ideal world, any data you collect or obtain would be clean and formatted perfectly for analysis and visualization. But the reality is that data can be really messy! Cleaning and reformatting your data can be a time-consuming and tedious task, but there are ways to speed things up and automate repetitive tasks. OpenRefine can help!

This 1-hour online workshop will provide an introduction to OpenRefine, a powerful open source tool for exploring, cleaning and manipulating “messy” data. Through a combination of lecture and demonstrations, participants will learn how to:

    Explore and identify patterns in data Manipulate and generate new textual and numeric data Transform and reshape datasets

This is a short, introductory workshop. If you would like to learn more on these topics, you are encouraged to self-enroll in our longer, online, self-paced workshop (but note there is some overlap between these workshops):

    Working with Messy Data in OpenRefine

A link to join the event online will be sent to registrants.
