Welcome to our Newest Lesson Maintainers!

Eighteen new Lesson Maintainers badged

We are pleased to announce that our most recent cohort of Lesson Maintainers have completed onboarding and are ready to support lessons across The Carpentries curricula. Eighteen new Maintainers participated in the three hour onboarding, using a completely updated curriculum with the following goals:

  • Orientation to The Carpentries goals and vision for lesson maintanence
  • Getting connected with other Maintainers and the overall Maintainer community
  • Developing skills for creating a positive environment for all contributors
  • Becoming familiar with the key components of the lesson template
  • Practicing core technical skills for lesson maintanence
  • Learning how and when to elevate issues to the Curriculum Advisory Committee

We are excited to welcome these new members to the Maintainer community and look forward to working with them, and continuing to work with our many committed continuing Maintainers, over the coming months.

Our new Maintainers are:

For Data Carpentry - Astronomy

  • Kimberly Meechan
  • David Palmquist
  • Ulf Schiller
  • Robert Turner

Thank you to all existing Maintainers who provided insightful feedback on updating the onboarding process, especially in developing the new Curriculum Advisory Committee Consultation Rubric which will help to guide interactions between Maintainers and Curriculum Advisors.

An enormous thank you is also due to Daniel Chen, The Carpentries Maintainer Community Lead, who engaged in extensive planning and curriculum development and co-lead each of the three sessions.
