Our Workshops

The Carpentries develop and teach interactive, hands-on, two-day workshops for learning core skills in research computing. Data Carpentry workshops are domain-specific, and focus on teaching skills for working with data effectively and reproducibly. Software Carpentry workshops are domain agnostic, and teach program design, version control, testing, and task automation.

Carpentry workshops are in-person events, generally two days long, and are taught by volunteer Instructors. Our Instructors are trained in pedagogy with a focus on creating a motivating and engaging learning environment.

Our lesson materials are collaboratively developed by our volunteer community. All of our lessons are open source, and are hosted on GitHub.
