Software literacy has become a key competence for scientists across all disciplines. Scientists use the software daily, and software development is becoming an increasingly important component of scientific productivity. However, the software needed for certain research projects can get highly complex and take up resources otherwise needed for core research. In the demanded professionalization of software development in research, specialized Research Software Engineers have emerged in recent years. With their help, researchers tackle the challenges in the areas of software and data, such as reproducibility, correctness, user-friendliness, performance, or maintenance.
The two-day workshop provides new opportunities for learning about best practices in scientific software development, like:
Seeing recent flagship projects in action.
Discussing software licensing and intellectual property issues.
Discovering new ways to make your software known and recognized.
Interested scientists, research software engineers, IT and computing specialists and individuals involved in creating, using or otherwise dealing with research software are invited.
