The Software Sustainability Institute is pleased to announce the launch of the new mailing list 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.

Join the list or view it online

We now also have a #local-uk channel under The Carpentries Slack workspace.

About The Carpentries

The Carpentries was formed in January 2018 by formally merging Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry. The Carpentries teach researchers the essential computing and data skills needed to do computational or data-intensive research and exist because this type of training is not part of basic research training in most research disciplines, or is pitched at the wrong level wrong level, is not researcher-centric or is hard to access.
