Our Workshops

A Software Carpentry workshop is a hands-on training that covers the core skills needed to be productive in a small research team. Short tutorials alternate with practical exercises, and all instruction is done via live coding. All workshop participants are required to abide by our code of conduct to ensure that all attendees to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience.

To help us improve our instruction, we have prepared a pre-assessment questionnaire for learners that can be used to ensure instruction is at the right level, a post-assessment questionnaire for learners to help us determine how well the workshop went, and a second post-assessment questionnaire for instructors for calibration. Please contact us if you are organizing a workshop for help delivering and evaluating these questionnaires.
