Based on their extensive experience with teaching R & statistics to applied scientists, the authors provide a beginner's guide to R. To avoid the difficulty of teaching R & statistics at the same time, statistical methods are kept to a minimum.
"This lesson is an introduction to programming in Python for people with little or no previous programming experience. It uses plotting as its motivating example [...] This lesson references JupyterLab, but can be taught using a regular Python interpreter as well. Please note that this lesson uses Python 3 rather than Python 2."

"MATLAB is available to faculty, staff, and students on the Windows, Mac OS X and Linux operating systems. MATLAB is licensed for teaching, learning and academic research and may be installed on university owned and personal machines.
This software is also available to current Earth & Energy students through the Virtual lab."
"The best way to learn how to program is to do something useful, so this introduction to MATLAB is built around a common scientific task: data analysis. Our real goal isn’t to teach you MATLAB, but to teach you the basic concepts that all programming depends on. [...] GNU Octave is a free and open-source alternative to MATLAB which shares its syntax (see more about compatibility). Thus, if you don’t have access to MATLAB, you can easily set up Octave on your computer and still work through the lesson." OU IT provides a campus MATLAB license.
"guides the reader through both programming and built-in functions to easily exploit MATLAB's extensive capabilities for tackling engineering and scientific problems. Assuming no knowledge of programming, this book starts with programming concepts, such as variables, assignments, and selection statements, moves on to loops, and then solves problems using both the programming concept and the power of MATLAB."
"The overall aim of the book is to introduce students to the typical course followed by a data analysis project in earth sciences. A project usually involves searching relevant literature, reviewing and ranking published books and journal articles, extracting relevant information from the literature in the form of text, data, or graphs, searching and processing the relevant original data using MATLAB, and compiling and presenting the results as posters, abstracts, oral presentations and multimedia publications using graphics design software."
"This book will take you through GIS techniques, geodatabases, geospatial raster data, and much more using the latest built-in tools and libraries in Python 3.7." Recommended by a grad student who found chapters 2 and 3 explained a lot of concepts that get glossed over in courses.
"Qiita (canonically pronounced cheetah) is an entirely open-source microbial study management platform. It allows users to keep track of multiple studies with multiple ‘omics data. Additionally, Qiita is capable of supporting multiple analytical pipelines through a 3rd-party plugin system, allowing the user to have a single entry point for all their analyses. Qiita’s main site provides database and compute resources to the global community, alleviating the technical burdens, such as familiarity with the command line or access to compute power, that are typically limiting for researchers studying microbial ecology. Qiita’s platform allows for quick reanalysis of the datasets that have been deposited using the latests analytical technologies. This means that Qiita’s internal datasets are living data that is periodically re-annotated according to current best practices. "
Visualizations with Inkscape (open source) and Illustrator (Adobe, OU license)
This concise book covers concepts central to digital illustration using the Inkscape 0.91 open source software package as well as the Adobe Illustrator professional Illustration package. The book builds on the foundational concepts of vector graphics and the SVG format, and gets more advanced as chapters progress, covering what vector new media formats are best for use with Android Studio, Java and JavaFX, iOS, Kindle and HTML5, as well as key factors regarding the data footprint optimization work process, and why data footprint optimization is important.
"Adobe Illustrator Classroom in a Book (2021 release) contains lessons that cover the basics and beyond, providing countless tips and techniques to help you become more productive with the program. You can follow the book from start to finish or choose only those lessons that interest you."
