Carpentries-based "FAIR Data and Software" workshop (July 9-13, 2018 in Hannover)

This workshop aimed to train junior scientists in implementing the FAIR principles for research data & software management & development. We want to help you identify similarities and differences between these two scientific objects and apply respectively appropriate good practices in preparing, publishing and archiving your work. 

We approximately focussed on one topic / principle per day, introducing its reasoning, benefits, and (differing and/or shared) implications for proper research data/software management/development together with the learners. We followed-up the theory-leaning introductions in the mornings with discussions and live-coding sessions, using some (Software & Data) Carpentry materials to illustrate and practice a principle's implementation in the  STEM disciplines ("MINT-Fächer").  Regardless of discipline, learners were encouraged to bring questions about their own data and source code, which we tried to answer during the week.

It is a new, experimental workshop format that contextualises the highly practical lesson material from the Software and DataCarpentries with the FAIR principles.
