This year Toby Hodges and I contributed to the organisation of the first [European CarpentryConnect event](https://software.ac.uk/ccmcr19), which was hosted by the [Software Sustainability Institute (SSI)](https://software.ac.uk/about) in Manchester. Under the leadership of Aleks Nenadic, the training head at SSI, we had the privilege to help shape the program, offer our support wherever we could, and lead/co-lead a few breakout sessions. This was a very successful event, which allowed us to reconnect with our dear friends and colleagues in The Carpentries community, get to know more members, exchanges thousands of new ideas, and collaborate with them. You can see blog posts from many attendees including both of us [here](https://software.ac.uk/tags/carpentryconnect).

This was a very successful event, which allowed us to reconnect with our dear friends and colleagues in [The Carpentries](https://carpentries.org/) community (a volunteer-based community that teaches computational skills to researchers), get to know more members, exchanges thousands of new ideas, and collaborate with them.

I had also submitted my idea for a lightning talk on the topic "Why being 'less specialised' is an important skill for the community managers". I wanted to give a proper presentation - but to fit the one slide rule for the lightning talk, I wrote a friendly letter to all the community managers.
