A Year in Review: Annual Moore Progress Report

Authors: Tracy Teal BLOG

A year ago we were fortunate enough to receive a grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation Data-Driven Discovery initiative to support Data Carpentry to develop and deliver data skills training to researchers in the life and physical sciences. See our original proposal here. Thanks to the Moore Foundation, this support has allowed us as a community to run more workshops, develop new materials, develop infrastructure and advocate for the importance of data skills training for more effective and reproducible research.

The work of the community has made this possible and we wanted to share our Moore annual report to highlight all the work that has been done in the last year!

Some highlights from the last year

Workshops

Instructors

Curriculum

Strategic Planning, Sustainability, Communication and Advocacy

In year one the focus was on building the foundation to scale to run more workshops and train instructors, develop materials in new domains, maintain existing lessons and support our instructor community. We also are working to establish Data Carpentry with Software Carpentry as sustainable organizations. We’ll continue these activities in year two and and also work on scaling to reach and engage with more learners and instructors throughout the world!

As always, great thanks to all the volunteers who make all this work possible!
