As part of the Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet, volunteer research software engineers have been mentoring volunteer researchers using spreadsheets to help them learn a language of their choice and explore various ways of working with and moving beyond spreadsheets.

Mentees will write a blog post to report on their projects towards the end of the programme at the beginning of November. These will be published throughout week 1 and week 2 of the Camp.

We will also release a podcast episode where we speak with some of our volunteers on week 2. The episode will be kindly hosted on the Code For Thought podcast run by Peter Schmidt.

We would like to thank all mentors for donating their time to this project. Without your help, the Learning to Code programme wouldn’t be able to happen.
