The Carpentries community of practice started out with a clear goal: teaching foundational computational skills to researchers worldwide. Shared values and goals have long been the starting point of communities of practice as they identify changes they want to see and start working together towards these changes. As a community, The Carpentries are now looking to articulate more closely what these values are and wish the community members to be an integral part of creating these value statements.
The Software Sustainability Institute is pleased to announce the launch of the new mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org under The Carpentries Topicbox. This mailing group is open to the Carpentry community in the UK – trainers, instructors, helpers, workshop coordinators and facilitators and anyone else interested in joining – to discuss training matters round the UK.
