By Malvika Sharan, Software Sustainability Institute Fellow I recently gave a lightning talk on the topic “Why being ‘less specialised’ is an important skill for the community managers”. I wanted to give a proper presentation - but to fit the “1-slide-in-2-minutes” rule, I wrote a short friendly letter to all the community managers.
By Malvika Sharan, Community Outreach Coordinator at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) Heidelberg Let me start by saying that I am a positive person (generally speaking!). If you tell me about a disaster, I will try to find something positive in it. Having made that disclaimer, I can now safely say that I am a bit pessimistic too. Therefore, no matter how positive I am about my training and outreach events as a community manager, I am ready to fight the disaster that hasn’t occurred yet.
By Malvika Sharan, Community Outreach Coordinator at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) Heidelberg One of the highlights this year for The Carpentries’ community in Europe was the CarpentryConnect event, which took place from 24 to 27 June 2019 in the vibrant British city of Manchester. Aleks Nenadic, the Training Lead at the Software Sustainability Institute, chaired the organisation team and recently posted a report from this incredible meeting. In this post, I will share some of my personal notes.
