The Carpentries

Join us for an informal Edinburgh Carpentries Networking Event on the 24th May 2019 from 4pm to 7pm at the Bayes Centre to find out how The Carpentries may improve your research and how you can contribute to providing core computational and data analysis training to scientists in the Edinburgh area. Edinburgh Carpentries, based in The Carpentries model, aims to establish a recurring and coordinated offer of computational training to the research community in Edinburgh. Register on Eventbrite. Please note that attendance is free but registration is required.
With four fascinating keynotes around the theme of training and an exciting schedule of lightning talks, workshop sessions and a social programme, the Software Sustainability Institute is delighted to announce the provisional programme for CarpentryConnect Manchester 2019 (ccmcr19). Register before 18th April to get an early-bird rate.
We are very pleased to announce Lex Nederbragt, Head of Education and Training for the Centre for Bioinformatics, University of Oslo, as one of the keynote speakers at CarpentryConnect Manchester 2019. In his talk “Learning from the Carpentries”, Lex will reflect on how involvement with The Carpentries can shape one's thinking about teaching, learning, community and science.
We are very pleased to announce Marta Teperek from TU Delft in Netherlands as one of the keynote speakers at CarpentryConnect Manchester 2019. Her talk “Better data (and code!) Help!...” will address issues around data management in research.
We are very pleased to announce Tracy Teal as one of the keynote speakers at CarpentryConnect Manchester 2019. Her talk “Democratising data: building inclusive communities teaching universal data literacy” will address issues around supporting the creation and development of inclusive communities and teaching researchers data skills.
In affiliation with The Carpentries, The Software Sustainability Institute is organising the first European CarpentryConnect event in Manchester from 25th to 27th June 2019.
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.
Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research at the University of Manchester is running "Data Carpentry workshop for Social Scientists with R" on the 13th and 14th December 2018. This two-day workshop is aimed at social scientists seeking to increase their skills in data management, particularly in dealing with new forms of complex and unstructured data.
By Ben Companjen, Nicky Nicolson, Marcin Wolski, Graeme Andrew Stewart, and Anastasis Georgoulas. As more research fields develop some computational aspects, teaching good software practices and development becomes essential across the scientific spectrum. With the exception of some disciplines with a strong computing tradition, students and staff in most other areas have to adopt generic materials, which are quite often limited in scope or make unrealistic assumptions about the background of their audience.
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.
