As part of the Research Software Camp: Next Steps in Coding, volunteer research software engineers will mentor beginner learners to improve their coding skills and provide hands-on help and support post-training to develop specific computational skills.
The free Learning to Code mentorship programme will run from 16 May to 22 July. We held a launch event on Monday 16 May to introduce the programme and pair mentees with mentors according to their language or tools of interest. They will then meet for one hour a week until 22 July (10 weeks), receiving advice on their project from an experienced Research Software Engineer.
At the end of the programme, we ask mentees to submit a short blog post about their project or their mentorship experience.
