Software/Data Carpentry Instructor Training workshop for ELIXIR trainers organised by ELIXIR-UK in Manchester 22-23 November was a great success.

The workshop was run by Greg Wilson from Software Carpentry Foundation, Aleksandra Pawlik from SSI and Karin Lagesen from University of Oslo.

In the process, we trained 24 new Software/Data Carpentry instructors from a number of ELIXIR nodes (UK, Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia, Spain, France). In addition, Aleksandra Pawlik and Karin Lagesen both got certified to run Software/Data Carpentry instructor training workshops independently - they are the first such instructors from Europe, which will make it easier for us to run such workshops in the future.

Some comments from the participants of the workshop:

"Greg - you were inspiring. It went very well indeed. And thanks for the great ideas."

"I'll be offline again today, too much good stuff happening in the train the trainer. This course is brilliant."

"Very many thanks for the software / data carpentry instructors training this week. I learned a lot from it - not least because you all were so enthusiastic about learning how to share what you know."
