CarpentryConnect UK (2019)

Posted on Updated on

For those who may be new to ‘The Carpentries’ – let me introduce you. I first joined a Library of Congress sponsored Library Carpentry event designed to teach interested folks the intro to ways of manipulating data with Python and OpenRefine.

Library Carpentry is a subset of the larger educational entity, The Carpentries.

Well, it looks like an organization in the UK, the Sustainable Software Institute is organizing the ‘first European CarpentryConnect event in Manchester‘ in June (25-27 June 2019). This will be a networking as well as technical learning event it appears.

I wish I could go – but the American Library Association Annual conference is too close there – schedule-wise.

Maybe next time. Either way, this should be good. If you plan to be in Manchester in June this year (2019), and love the educational, open-educational model for learning to code, please consider attending or supporting in some way.

Cheers.
