Last year, we asked you to fill a survey about you and your job as a Research Software Engineer. The goal was to have a clear picture of who you are and what you're doing in order to help us to tailor our actions and to promote the role of RSE.
For this third iteration, we had more collaborators to adapt the survey to gather replies from more countries. We have included specific questions and answers for the following countries, and we've listed our main contacts there:
Australia: Manodeep Sinha, Nick May
Canada: Scott Henwood
Germany: Stephan Druskat, Katrin Leinweber, Stephan Janosch and Martin Hammitzsch
Netherlands: Ben van Werkhoven and Tom Bakker
New Zealand: Nooriyah P. Lohani
South Africa: Anelda van der Walt
United States: Daniel Katz and Sandra Gesing
This year, we also had the possibility to include participants from all around the world, and not only from the seven countries mentioned above.
In total, we had 985 replies for the survey. In particular, a total of 237 unique responses from participants in the UK were analysed.
