Five Caltech librarians are certified Carpentries Instructors. The Carpentries initiatives organize hands-on workshops to teach researchers essential computing skills. Open-source platforms are taught wherever possible, including OpenRefine, Git/GitHub, Python, and R, among others. Caltech Library instructors are trained to teach several of these lessons, and they will periodically offer workshops hosted by the Library. Check our schedule to see if one is coming up or sign up for our mailing list to hear about workshops before everyone else!
The Caltech Library is happy to partner with campus groups to design and host Carpentry workshops for their target audiences. Contact us for more information on co-sponsoring a workshop for your group.
