Thanks to everyone that participated in the 4th Mozilla-Library Carpentry Global Sprint. Unlike the 3 previous sprints, this year’s sprint stretched across the full month of May with the majority of the sprint taking place 30-31 May 2019.
The sprint started earlier in the month with Centre for Digital Scholarship at Leiden University Libraries drafting a Top 10 FAIR Data & Software Things for Astronomy.
The @LibCarpentry-@mozilla Global Sprint started this morning at @CDSLeiden sprinting on the Top 10 #FAIR Data and Software Things for Astronomy and Particle Physics: @khettne @fieldworker @evertrol @gravana (via zoom) discussing the target audience of “Things” #mozsprint #lc2019 pic.twitter.com/yj0ABjzhVG
