These lessons follow in Bioconductor’s and the Carpentries’ open source model where all contributions are welcomed and acknowledged. If you would like to contribute now or at any future point to the development of these lessons, please follow the steps below to give your input in a way we can track/acknowledge you.
Take a look through the current lessons as they would be seen by learners. Find a place that could use an assessment exercise, explanatory text, typo correction, etc.
This is where the lessons are actually developed. If you do not know anything about Git, GitHub or markdown, you can still easily contribute by reading the contributing guidelines although these are still the generic Carpentries’ guidelines. The best way is to create a free GitHub account and then you can create an issue on each lesson’s page (Issues tab on the top menu bar) with your comments/suggested assessment.
Are we going to split into tables? This could be a good way to find other interested people to work collaboratively.
See our short talk in the Education and Frameworks session later today (Thursday) at 8 pm EDT.
Lesson development will continue after the conference. Contributions via GitHub are welcome at any time. Additionally:
