Next Steps

Software Carpentry has accomplished an amazing amount over the past six and a half years, but a new opportunity has come up for me here in Toronto, and after a great deal of thought, I’ve decided to pursue it. At the end of January 2017, I will be taking a position as a Computer Science Education Lead at Shopify, where I will help with their CS education partnerships. I’m excited to have a chance to work for change locally, but also look forward to continuing to be involved in the Carpentries as a volunteer, and to many more discussions of teaching, open science, and how awful Git truly is.

It has been a privilege working with you all: watching you turn a handful of lessons into a global organization empowering tens of thousands of researchers has been the best experience of my career. Thank you for everything.
