The Software Sustainability Institute
At the Collaborations Workshop 21, Emily Bell and Anna-Maria Sichani discussed the issue of software reusability in digital humanities (DH) research. This blog post provides an overview of some of the underlying issues, as well as the conversation points, resources and avenues for future exploration that arose from the discussion.
Registration is now open for the Alan Turing Institute's Digital Humanities & Research Software Engineering virtual summer school, running from 26 - 30 July 2021.
"We are in a position to fundamentally reorganise the heart of the software. By doing so, this will enable us to maintain the software into the future and facilitate the process of adding new functionality to the software ... SSI can assist in having software usable by others not just for a few months or a year, but rather for a much longer software lifetime"
