Since 1998, Software Carpentry has been teaching researchers the computing skills they need to get more done in less time and with less pain. Our volunteer instructors have run hundreds of events for more than 34,000 researchers since 2012. All of our lesson materials are freely reusable under the Creative Commons - Attribution license.
The Software Carpentry Foundation and its sibling lesson project, Data Carpentry, have merged to become The Carpentries, a fiscally sponsored project of Community Initiatives, a 501(c)3 non-profit incorporated in the United States. See the staff page for The Carpentries.
Software Carpentry is made possible by the generous support of our member organisations and by the hard work of our volunteers. We offer several levels of institutional engagement. We provide many ways people can engage with our community.
As an open source project, we rely on volunteers to create our lessons.
