The Carpentries is a community of instructors and learners promoting the importance of good software and data practices in research. If you’ve not heard of The Carpentries, I encourage you to read more. And if you’re Edinburgh based, learn about our own branch of The Carpentries.

Perhaps, as was the case with me recently, you’ve signed up to instruct on your first Carpentry and don’t know exactly what to expect. Read on for an account of some of the questions you may be asking yourself (or that I asked myself, at least) and some questions you may be asked while instructing. Hopefully I can provide you with some useful answers to these.
