Upcoming training events/workshops
Byte-sized RSE is a series of online sessions that began in October 2022 and is run by the UNIVERSE-HPC project, where SSI is a partner. The series provides key research software skills in just 1 hour and each session has a companion podcast episode in the Code for Thought podcast series. Topics covered so far include software licensing, collaboration and code review via GitHub, and testing your Python code. The upcoming Byte-sized RSE Session 4: Continuous Integration will run via Zoom on Tuesday 17th January 2023, 13:00-14:00 GMT/UTC+0. Registrations for this session are now open.
If you want to learn how to develop lessons collaboratively and have an idea for developing a new lesson from scratch with a group of collaborators you can get more information or apply to join The Carpentries Collaborative Lesson Development Training Pilots.
The Carpentries Incubator Lesson Spotlight is a regular feature in The Carpentries blog and Carpentries Clippings newsletter, highlighting the great work the Carpentry community is doing to develop new lessons in The Carpentries Incubator. The last edition’s featured lesson is R and the Tidyverse for Working with Data.
An advanced notice that The Carpentries official lessons will migrate to use The Carpentries Workbench, the new lesson infrastructure, in May 2023. If you are developing or thinking of developing a new lesson, please consider switching to the new lesson infrastructure.
