Carpentries @ Göttingen Campus

The Carpentries is a global community that teaches foundational coding and data science skills, with the aim to build up capacity for conducting efficient, open, and reproducible research and its applications. Three sections focus on different aspects and communities of these skills, but are all linked to the overall Carpentries goal and mission:

Topics of the workshops involve data organization and cleaning, data visualization, basics of programming languages such as Python, R or SQL, and working with regular expressions or with the command line. Most courses are intended for people with little or no previous knowledge, and particularly focus on an inclusive, step-by-step and hands-on approach.

Göttingen State and University Library coordinates a Carpentries community at Göttingen Campus, in which the eResearch Alliance is also active. Since 2018 a group of instructors and further interested persons works together and regularly organizes workshops.
