The Software Sustainability Institute website will be down for scheduled maintenance on Friday 10th August 2018 from 7:30am to 8:30am.
On the Software Heritage archive portal, more than 4 billion files from more than 80 million origins are available since June 7, 2018, date of the official opening ceremony held at the UNESCO, in the presence of sponsors and partners of Software Heritage. 
Computing in Science & Engineering (CiSE) is calling for papers for an upcoming special issue to be published in January/February 2020. This issue will examine the state of software and data citation, inform the community of the excellent resources available to advance research and education goals, and inform future directions for research and implementation.

Imperial College’s Research Computing Service are recruiting a developer to join as a Research Software Engineer (RSE). The successful applicant will be collaborating with leading researchers across the College, using appropriate technology to solve a diverse range of meaningful challenges.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone to work employed by the University of Cambridge but embedded in a startup nearby in Cambridge. Accepted candidates would be working on InterMine (an open source biological data warehouse) and would be working towards identifying cancer drug targets. The key objective of this role is to develop an analysis platform using the data warehouse InterMine to help STORM advance their cancer research. The KTP program aims to develop future business leaders and thus offers excellent training (dedicated annual budget), supervision and mentoring.

We've been working hard to bring our users a new and better Software Sustainability Institute website. After several months of work, we're finally going live! Tomorrow morning, you'll be able to visit the new website at this same address: www.software.ac.uk. If you encounter any technical difficulties during the next couple of days or have any comments about the new website, don't hesitate to get in touch with us at info@software.ac.uk or via Twitter @SoftwareSaved. 

The Carpentries (a fiscally sponsored project of Community Initiatives) was formed in January 2018 by formally merging Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry.

The Software Sustainability Institute website will be down for scheduled maintenance on Thursday 7th June 2018 from 12:00 to 12:45.
