The Software Sustainability Institute's Collaborations Workshop 2019 (CW19) will take place from Monday 1st April to Wednesday 3rd April 2019 at the West Park Teaching Hub, Loughborough University, Loughborough.
We are pleased to announce that the recording of the Software Sustainability Institute's Collaborations Workshop 2018 (CW18) is online on YouTube. The agenda has also been amended and now links to the recording. Remember to save the date for Collaborations Workshop 2019 (CW19) at the West Park Teaching Hub, Loughborough University, which will take place from Monday 1st April until Wednesday 3rd April 2019.

It is also sister event to many national events around the continent, such as PyCon UK. This year, EuroPython was hosted in Edinburgh and, like in previous years, some of the talks were related with research software written in Python. We attended to learn how people are carrying out better research with Python.

This year, the Institute’s Fellowship Programme 2019 will call for applications in November 2018. Candidates will have the same amount of time as in previous years to prepare their application – six weeks.

After six years of working and communicating with The Carpentries’ staff and community via email and various video conferencing tools at all sorts of early or late hours, we finally met them face-to-face for the very first time at CarpentryCon 2018. It was all very exciting!
By Raniere Silva, Software Sustainability Institute. We know that seven out of ten UK researchers reported that their work would be impossible without software, but, sometimes when attending domain specific conferences, we still get surprised at the importance of software in research. On June 2018, I attended Measuring Behavior 2018 by invitation of our fellow Robyn Grant.

Collaborations Workshop 2018 (CW18) will start next Monday 26th of March at The School of Mathematics, Cardiff University. We are looking forward to meeting everyone in person and have a great time.

uCONFLY is a unconference resource management system and we will use it at Collaborations Workshop 2018.
