By Anna Krystalli, Software Sustainability Institute Fellow It was great to be at CarpentryConnect Manchester 2019 a few weeks ago. Not only did I join a fantastic group of people who are a joy to spend time with, extremely knowledgeable and generous with that knowledge, but, with such a focus on active learning, it was also the perfect event for running the first ReproHack in the series and gathering feedback to guide future development.
