Apply for the current round of Carpentries Maintainer Onboarding!

The Carpentries is preparing to onboard the next cohort of Maintainers. Applications due March 8th.

The Carpentries is preparing to onboard the next cohort of Maintainers. Currently we have 109 Maintainers serving across 56 core lessons. To keep the community healthy, we need to plan for offboarding people who want to step down from their current positions and finding new people to step into the role.

You do not need to be a Git expert to be a Maintainer. If you are familiar with the Git lessons from either Library Carpentry or Software Carpentry, you will have the foundation and support to learn the skills you will need as a Maintainer. The Maintainer community has a dedicated Slack channel, TopicBox list, and two monthly meetings to help support you and the lesson you are working on.

We are recruiting Maintainers for all of our official lessons, including both English and Spanish language materials. Although Maintainer Onboarding will be held in English, we strongly encourage applications from folks who are interested in maintaining one of the four official Carpentries lessons currently offered in Spanish.

If you are interested in helping maintain, improve, and grow our lessons, please apply to be a lesson Maintainer.

Applications may be submitted until midnight of 8 March, anywhere on Earth.

If you have any questions about the application or about being a Maintainer, please reach out to The Carpentries team or to the Maintainer Community Lead, Vini Salazar. To contact Vini, please send him a message on The Carpentries Slack workspace.
