The Carpentries is a worldwide community driven initiative to teach foundational coding and data science skills to researchers. The focus lies on open science, covering skills such as reproducible coding and data management. Workshops are hands-on with lesson material developed and maintained by members of the scientific community. Carpentries workshops take 2 days (or 4 half days) covering a broad range of fundamental skills. We are also planning to teach stand-alone lessons, for instance 3-hour workshops. The latter are particular useful if you already have basic knowledge and want to receive additional training on a specific topic.
The two types of Carpentries workshops we will teach are Data Carpentry and Software Carpentry. The first focusing on open and reproduceable data curation and management and the latter on reproducible coding. Workshops will be taught by colleague researchers and support staff at the institutes. The workshops are coordinated by the NWO-I Digital Competence Center and are free of charge. We will organize workshops on demand, so we need your help identifying which workshops are of interest.
