The Software Sustainability Institute
By Catherine Smith, Software Sustainability Institute Fellow As part of my Software Sustainability Institute Fellowship, I was able to attend the Digital Humanities (DH2019) conference which this year was held in Utrecht. This is not a conference I attend regularly as it tends not to focus on the technical side of digital humanities. However, this year there was a workshop which I was particularly interested in attending.
Are you involved in the management or execution of funded projects whereby the research was dependent on bespoke software? You are invited to participate in the Impact of Management and Process on Research Software study (IMPARS) led by Software Sustainability Institute Fellow Sorrel Harriet.
"It adds development time, doing things right, but it's worth it. Our code is miles away from where it was. [The work has] really made a profound change to the way we do coding, even down to the way I write lines of code. We now understand the complexity involved in making things run smoothly – it's really been a very good learning experience"
