Thanks for contributing to The Carpentries Incubator! This repository provides a blank starting point for lessons to be developed here.

A member of the Carpentries Curriculum Team will work with you to get your lesson listed on the Community Developed Lessons page and make sure you have everything you need to begin developing your new lesson.

What to do next

Before you begin developing your new lesson, here are a few things we recommend you do:

  • [ ] Decide on a title for your new lesson! Once you've chosen a new title, you can set the value for lesson_title in _config.yml
  • [ ] Add the URL to your built lesson pages to the repository description*
  • [ ] Fill in the fields marked FIXME in:
  • [ ] If you're going to be developing lesson material for the first time according to our design principles, consider reading the Carpentries Curriculum Development Handbook
  • [ ] Consult the Lesson Example website to find out more about working with the lesson template
  • [ ] Update this README with relevant information about your lesson and delete this section

* To set the URL on GitHub, click the gear wheel button next to About on the right of the repository landing page. The lesson URL structure is<repository-slug>: a repository at will have pages at the lesson URL
