I will not be teaching STAT 540 this year. I leave it in the capable hands of Gabriela Cohen-Freue.

Auditing

In general, I like auditors to register officially. I am happy to discuss with you my expectations of an auditor; they are not scary and awful. Official auditing instructions for UBC students:

If you have a good reason to NOT audit officially, e.g. you're a post-doc and it would be expensive, please get in touch with me to discuss.

Workshops, bootcamps, etc.

This training is often organized through Software Carpentry (SWC) or the Statistical Consulting and Research Laboratory (SCARL).
