HEP Software Training with HSF/IRIS-HEP

HEP software requires both general computational skills and domain knowledge of the field. In my experience, more and more young students lack the software knowledge needed to contribute to the HEP community. IRIS-HEP and the HSF have programs designed to bridge this gap for young scientists through training events. Specifically, I mention the Software Basics Training workshops that teach young researchers about the basic tools and skills needed not only in HEP but in general computer science. In this talk, I will go through my contributions as an HSF and IRIS-HEP mentor experiences as a mentor, facilitator, and instructor of some of these events and I will invite the community to join the efforts of developing, maintaining, and improving the content for the training events.
