Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research at the University of Manchester is running "Data Carpentry workshop for Social Scientists with R" on the 13th and 14th December 2018. This two-day workshop is aimed at social scientists seeking to increase their skills in data management, particularly in dealing with new forms of complex and unstructured data.

Educational psychology provides us with great findings about the process of human learning that can help educators provide more effective training to learners. Because their curriculum is sometimes full, many researchers, developers and publishers don't know about those findings when they start their careers as educators, just like researchers might be unfamiliar with best software developer practices because they weren't taught them.

After six years of working and communicating with The Carpentries’ staff and community via email and various video conferencing tools at all sorts of early or late hours, we finally met them face-to-face for the very first time at CarpentryCon 2018. It was all very exciting!

Registrations are now open for CarpentryCon 2018 in Dublin. The event will take place from 30th May to 1st June 2018. 

The Carpentries have announced that the first CarpentryCon will take place from 30 May-1 June 2018 at the University College Dublin, Ireland.

CarpentryCon aspires to become a major learning, skill-building and networking event for the global Carpentries community. CarpentryCon 2018 will focus on three main themes:

The Software Sustainability Institute is organising Carpentry Instructor Training workshop at the University of Manchester from 4th to 5th September 2017, just before WSSSPE5.1 and RSE 2017—making it a nice week in Manchester.

The Institute is helping organise and run a Software Carpentry taster on 18 May 2017 at Digital Humanities @ Manchester Digital Texts workshops.

Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs), also called Doctoral Training Centres (DTCs), are one of the several ways by which research councils in the UK provide support for advanced, high-level and increasingly interdisciplinary scientific training following undergraduate studies.

The Software Sustainability Institute, ELIXIR UK and the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Oxford are jointly organising a Bioinformatics Software Carpentry workshop in NGS data analysis.
