Make your work more discoverable, transparent and reusable: DIY documentation, Oct. 18 at 4 p.m.

OHSU BioData Club is a co-learning community supported by the OHSU Library and DMICE

Good data and project or software documentation make your work more discoverable, transparent and reusable. One tool that helps simplify technical documentation is the software platform Read the Docs. This free and open source platform automates the building, versioning and hosting of your docs.

Join the BioData Club at OHSU for the workshop: DIY Documentation with Read the Docs.

In this hands-on BioData Club and OHSU Library workshop, instructors Eric Earl and Robin Champieux will introduce attendees to documentation best practices and guide them through the process of publishing a documentation website using Read the Docs and Markdown.

All OHSU community members and friends are welcome! No prior experience is required, but please register in advance.  BioData Club Workshop
