Support The Carpentries
The Carpentries is a fiscally sponsored project of Community Initiatives and encompasses the lesson programs Software Carpentry, Data Carpentry and Library Carpentry. The Carpentries operates globally to bring researchers the skills they need to transform data into knowledge. Our lesson materials are openly available and collaboratively developed by a community of people dedicated to increasing the accessibility of these skills and the diversity of people who use them. We develop and maintain lessons in foundational computation and data science skills and offer pedagogical training to instructors, empowering positive and effective peer-to-peer instruction. A truly amazing community has grown around our mission, and together we have trained over 2,400 instructors and offered over 2,300 workshops in 61 countries on all 7 continents.
We work every day to bring training to more people, expand our resources, support our community, and maintain the quality and relevance of our material. We are depending on financial support from individuals and organisations to continue to provide these resources and expand our impact. We welcome the support you can give once, weekly or monthly.
