Internationalisation of The Carpentries: Lessons learnt on the way
Academic presentations can be uploaded in their original slide format. Presentations are usually represented as slide decks. Videos of presentations can be uploaded as media.
At the end of 2018, there was growing interest in the internationalisation of the Carpentries teaching material for non-English language speaking countries. As part of this community- driven initiative, I became involved in the translation of the Software Carpentry materials into Japanese. In this lightning talk, I would like to share my experience on organising, managing, and collaborating with people living in Japan, using Git and GitHub.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I have been involved with The Carpentries since I began my MSc at the University of Otago; first as a learner, then a helper, and finally as an instructor. I became an official Carpentries instructor in 2018, and since then, I have been involved in the translation of The Carpentries material into Japanese.
