Shape The Future of Software Carpentry in an SCF Standing Subcommittee

The Software Carpentry Foundation Steering Committee was elected to pursue ambitious goals driven by the voices and expertise in our community. We are therefore thrilled to announce a set of community-driven subcommittees aimed at initiatives essential to the Software Carpentry Foundation.

Today, we are asking for representatives from the community to support this effort and shape the future of Software Carpentry. Please step forward to volunteer for the standing committee most important to you. Committee members will be asked to dedicate a few hours per month. To join us, please email the SCF Steering Committee with your name and a few sentences about your interest.
