Workshop helpers

Have you already participated in a Carpentry or CodeRefinery workshop, but would like to attend another one to refresh your memory and share your own knowledge? Or do you already have a solid background in research software engineering and would like to meet like-minded people in a friendly environment? Join a Carpentry or CodeRefinery workshop as a helper! Get in touch and let us know which workshop you would like to join.

Become an instructor

CodeRefinery instructors organise and teach both CodeRefinery and Carpentry workshops to spread data literacy, programming skills and best software practices in the Nordics.

If you would like to become an instructor for CodeRefinery and/or Carpentry workshops, you should begin by participating in a 2-day Carpentry instructor training event. Please get in touch if this sounds interesting.

Contribute to teaching material

Become a partner

Coderefinery started as a sponsored and funded project, but we are encouraging more partnerships to stay sustainable long-term. In general, we image a reciprocal relationship for academic institutions: you help us run workshops, we give workshops at your institution. Join our chat (Zulip, below) and talk to us. There’s no formal process yet and we don’t even know exactly how it will work, so join and have some influence.

Contact us


We use Zulip to discuss within our team and community. We discuss in the open and you can join us on you can listen in, follow certain threads, participate, and influence.
