The CarpentryCon Task Force

The CarpentryCon Task Force’s mission is organise and host a meeting every two years to bring together members of the global Carpentries community and people with similar interests. In 2018, the Task Force organised the very successful inaugural CarpentryCon. A call will be going out for new members to join the Task Force to build CarpentryCon 2021 in South Africa.

Our Goal:
To organise an event that will bring together and skill up members of the global Carpentries community and people with similar interests.

Our Approach:
We hold monthly meetings. At the moment, we are planning CarpentryCon 2020 and will begin planning for CarpentryCon 2021 in South Africa. We will be seaking volunteers to join the Task Force.

Our Structure:
The Task Force has monthly meetings, which are open to new members. Meetings are scheduled, organised, and run through this etherpad. We also organise information about our work and record minutes of meetings though this GitHub repo.
