The Software Sustainability Institute
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.
The Software Sustainability Institute’s Collaborations Workshop series brings together researchers, developers, innovators, managers, funders, publishers, policy makers, leaders and educators to explore best practices and the future of research software.
"The Institute helped us to define just how we would work together… They taught me how to become a software manager rather than just a developer... I can't speak highly enough of them"
