What We Do

and you can too!

Skill Sharing

Share your favorite coding skills and tools with your friends and colleagues in friendly, no-pressure work-alongs.


Get together to work on your coding projects, help each other out and share your work.

Community Building

Meet new people in your field, organization or community - and find out what we can do when we work together.


Our sessions are held in rooms throughout Aarhus University, so make sure to look at the session details to know where to go. All material is or should be found on the AUOC content website. A list of all previous events and sessions can be found on the "Past Events" page.

  • Create your own functions for package development in R
    23 November 2018, 10:00 AM, Aarhus University campus, AU campus, building 1264, room 310
    Every action in R is a function, so learning what they are and how to create them is a great way to learn more about R. Plus, creating your own functions is a powerful way to become more efficient and productive in your R coding! Come to this session to learn about functions, making them, and using them.
  • Keeping track of changes to your files with version control
    30 November 2018, 10:00 AM, Aarhus University campus, AU campus, building 1264, room 310
    Do you have files that look like this: thesis-V1.doc, thesis-draft-V2.doc, manuscript-next-version.doc, analysis1.R, analysis-new.R? Wish there was a better way to keep track of your files and changes that were made to them? Well, in this session we will cover using a formal version control system! Come and learn to better organize and manage your projects and files!
  • Best practices in data analysis workflow and project management in R
    5 December 2018, 10:00 AM, Aarhus University campus, AU campus, building 1264, room 310
    Do you often forget which files are part of which project? Does it take some time to find all the files you need for an analysis and manuscript? In these session we will cover best practices on workflows and project management. An efficient, systematic, and standardized workflow is essential to being more reproducible and writing better code. It's also important for doing more rigorous science and being more open. Come to this session to learn how to set up and use an efficient, open, and reproducible workflow that will help you organise not only your code, but also your mind!
