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.
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.
By Phil Reed, Nilani Ganeshwaran, Jez Cope, Tim Dennis, Chris Erdmann, Silvia Di Giorgio, Tracy Teal The demand for Library Carpentry (LC) is increasing in many parts of the world. Organising, developing and delivering Library Carpentry workshops presents many challenges, some of which are more common in LC than in the other Carpentries programmes. On 26 June 2019 Phil Reed and Nilani Ganeshwaran led a CarpentryConnect Manchester workshop where we discussed ways to strengthen the LC community.
CarpentryConnect Manchester 2019 (CCmcr19) will be held from 25th - 27th June 2019 at The Studio Manchester on 25th and 26th of June and in the Kilburn Building at the School of Computer Science (University of Manchester) on 27th June. Have a look at the programme for the event.
By Toby Hodges, European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) Heidelberg, Germany. You might have seen that the full programme for CarpentryConnect Manchester 2019 was published recently. As well as exciting keynote talks and plenty of breakout sessions covering important topics relating to teaching and developing skills in research software, the conference promises to be particularly relevant for anyone interested in developing high-quality teaching material or enhancing their computational skills.
The Software Sustainability Institute is delighted to announce that the full programme for CarpentryConnect Manchester 2019 (CCMcr19) is now available online.
Can we increase our impact by reducing it? Thoughts on environmental sustainability at CarpentryConnect Manchester 2019
By Aleksandra Nenadic, Training Lead, Software Sustainability Institute While we will undeniably create a sizeable carbon footprint by travelling to and from Manchester this June for CarpentryConnect (#CCMcr19), I nevertheless wanted to explore the ways in which we can reduce our impact on the environment at the conference.
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).
