Introduction to Computing at Hopkins Biostatistics

We offer five one-hour lunchtime lectures to introduce first-year students to the computing environment in the Department of Biostatistics at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. This is a super-short version of our first term course, Statistical Computing (140.776), which we encourage students to take in their second year. You may also wish to refer to the notes for that course, available on its web page.

Instructors: Karl Broman, Rafael Irizarry, Ingo Ruczinski, and Brian Caffo (aka "The KRIB")
Room: W3204
