The Carpentries

The Carpentries is community teaching foundational coding and data science skills worldwide, through the activity of more than 3700 instructors (in 2023). The scale of the initiative is supported by a structured system including a very applied approach to learning, collaborative lessons development, certification and acknowledgment of instructors and other types of contributors, etc. All the training providers in the BioNT consortium are involved in The Carpentries activity. Several aspects of the BioNT project are inspired to the community.
