|Conversations:||How do you fund your SWC workshops? Please join the conversation.|
|Should we remove old material when adding new in order to keep the lessons manageable? Should people have to teach the standard material a couple of times before introducing their own? Please contribute your ideas.|
|Resources:||Remember to sign up for Software Carpentry's mailing lists. They are rich resources for scientific computing.|
|Great R cheat sheets available at RStudio include sheets for dplyr, tidyr, Shiny, and R Markdown.|
