This year’s RSECon in Newcastle (6th-8th September 2022) was my first time attending RSECon as an RSE. The reason why I say “as an RSE,” is because way back in 2019, whilst I was still an astronomy PhD student, I managed to convince my supervisor that I should attend RSECon, because, hey, this might be a future career path for me – and it actually became my career path at the end of last year.

"We were already following a lot of best practice and it was very good to get this confirmation. We're not computer scientists and don't come from a software development background - we're all scientific programmers - so it was good to get some confirmation that what we do is on the right track"
