The Carpentries aim to help researchers by teaching them computing skills in order to work more effectively with data. Comprehensive, two-day workshops cover concepts and tools that workshop participants can apply to their own research and workflows. These tools include, but are not limited to:
- The Unix shells (bash, zsh, sh, etc.)
- Git and GitHub
The overall Carpentries project is comprised of Software Carpentry, Data Carpentry, and Library Carpentry. Each of those is a community of instructors, trainers, maintainers, helpers, and supporters.
This page contains brief overviews of some of the tools, along with installation and support information for workshop participants.
