In 2015, Compute Canada became a Software Carpentry national partner. Software Carpentry runs workshops all over the world, training researchers in the basic software skills needed to effectively and efficiently use ARC resources. Compute Canada leverages open success instructor training materials to bring a high level of standardized introductory training to new researchers across the country. As a partner, Compute Canada has committed to organize at least 20 Software Carpentry workshops across Canada every year, and has effectively become the coordinating body for all Software Carpentry workshops in Canada. This kind of partnership has been made possible by MSI funding and enabled by Compute Canada’s corporate structure.
