CarpentryConnect Manchester (#ccmcr19) will take place from 25th to 27th June 2019. Following the success of the inaugural CarpentryCon in Dublin earlier this year, we are pleased to announce that the Software Sustainability Institute is organising CarpentryConnect Manchester, in collaboration with Manchester’s Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research and with support from Manchester’s Data Science Institute.
Last September, a training initiative, called Edinburgh Carpentries, based on The Carpentries model was launched at the University of Edinburgh, in collaboration with other Higher Education and research institutions in the area. Leading this initiative, Giacomo Peru, Institute Project Officer, and Sean McGeever, Computing Manager at the University of Edinburgh, are working towards securing stable institutional support for administration and coordination and to widen community participation, essential for the supply of instructors and helpers at the workshops.
Are you interested in our activities but don’t know how to get involved? We’ve come up with a few suggestions with varying degrees of time commitment. Have a look at our new Get involved page.
We need your help filling in the  2018 RSE survey. You are eligible if you're working with research software. Previous RSE surveys have targeted specific countries.

The survey takes about 10-15 minutes to complete (ca. 80 questions). Please note that this research is not compulsory and even if you decide to participate you can withdraw at any moment.
