The next Byte-sized RSE session, covering repository README files, will take place on Tuesday 6th June, 13:00-14:30 BST/GMT+1.

Byte-sized RSE is a new series of short interactive tutorial sessions where you can learn key skills to improve how you write and manage your research software in just 1 hour!

In this final session of the first series of Byte-sized RSE, we’ll look at the humble README file! Not a default and often ignored file in the root of your project directory but a hugely important place for a range of information that can make or break the success of your project - join us to learn more.

Following a short presentation on the topic, there will be an opportunity to gain hands-on experience, and to ask questions, in an informal and informative environment.

Why not join us, and tell your colleagues too!
