As the in-person CarpentryCon had to be cancelled for this summer, the organisers still wanted to provide the Carpentries community with a chance to meet other members and learn from each other by moving content online.
The Carpentries has appointed Kari L. Jordan as its new Executive Director.
CarpentryCon 2020, due to be held at the end of June at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, USA, has been cancelled. Registration fees will be refunded.
Ryan Avery and Kunal Marwaha taught a new Carpentries Incubator lesson at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and wrote about their experience and feedback from the workshop.
Programme submissions are currently being requested for CarpentryCon 2020, which will be held in Wisconsin from 29 June to 1 July. Talented (and otherwise!) designers are also encouraged to submit their design ideas for the conference t-shirt.
The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) have agreed to provide $2.65 million (£2.07 million) in funding over three years to The Carpentries project.
Nominations are now open for community-elected and Council-elected positions
