Carpentry Connect

NZ’s second annual Carpentry Connect is coming to Wellington, NZ as a satellite event of eResearch NZ 2021!

Want to know more about the Carpentries? Or perhaps you want to connect with fellow instructors, helpers, and learners in the community? If yes, this community building event is for you!

Trainers, helpers, and maintainers from across NZ engage with The Carpentries community in different ways and there is seldom a chance to learn from each other’s successes and challenges. As a participant of Carpentry Connect, you can expect:

  • Regional updates from local Carpentries communities and groups — hear from places like The University of Canterbury, Genomics Aotearoa, and the Institute of Environmental Science and Research (ESR),
  • Updates on the latest content-specific developments that are happening in data carpentry, software carpentry,  library carpentry, and HPC carpentry
  • … and more items to be announced soon!

At the end of this get-together we hope you have new connections and feel supported as a valued member of the New Zealand Carpentries community. This event is free to attend. Watch this space and spread the word — registration will open soon!
