Community Governance

Governance Committee

The Software Carpentry Governance Committee provides community leadership for the lesson program. The Committee is responsible for overseeing the strategy of the Software Carpentry project, and advocating for the program, its mission, and its community. The committee acts as a point of contact for Software Carpentry, representing the lesson program to The Carpentries Governance, the Core Team, and the wider world. Members of the Group volunteer to serve two-year terms.

Curriculum Advisors identify opportunities for the curriculum to be updated and improved, ensuring that it stays relevant to Software Carpentry's target audience. They identify potential new lesson topics, and advise lesson Maintainers on major changes and updates to existing curriculum.
