CarpentryCon is a global conference that brings together members and friends of The Carpentries community for a dedicated time of discussions, networking and collaboration. In 2020, CarpentryCon was redesigned as a virtual conference, renamed to CarpentryCon @ Home and the schedule was stretched over several weeks to make it possible for people to attend sessions alongside their daily commitments.
On 26 August 2020 at 21h00 UTC and 27 August 2020 at 15h00 UTC, a few community builders and wranglers will come together in two fireside chats to discuss different challenges, ideas and approaches around Growing Inclusive, Computational Communities and Leaders. Please fill this form with any questions or topics you would like to be part of the agenda for the fireside chats and we will make sure to include them in the sessions.
The Fireside chat will be moderated by Serah Rono. Panelists that have confirmed availability to take part in the FireSide Chat include:
- Naomi Penfold from eLife
- Stefanie Butland from rOpenSci
- Toby Hodges from The Carpentries
- Marlene Mhangami from Python Software Foundation
- Kate Hertweck, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center
- Angela Li, former Maintainer Community Lead for The Carpentries
- Abigail Cabunoc Mayes from Mozilla Foundation and the Open Leaders Program
