Build a Binder

A guide to making your repository Binder-ready.

This repository contains material for hosting a one day workshop on making work compatible with Binder.

The repository is also used to organise the first three such events.

To get an idea for the scope read the grant proposal.

The Goal

We plan to create the material for a one-day workshop giving an introduction to the Binder project and the public service, and using it at three test events in Europe. These first events will allow the material to be trialed and improved, thus creating a lasting curriculum and allowing others to run similar workshops. The workshops will serve educators, journalists and scientists who want to learn to use Binder to improve the accessibility, shareability and reusability of their work.


Everyone is encouraged to contribute. We're looking for people who are good at organising in-person events, users of, those who are experienced in teaching people new skills and tools. In particular, people local to the places where we would like to hold the first three events will be welcomed with open arms. 🤗
