Registration is open for the panel discussion of 'Do we have the right tools for research?' at the Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet.
Join our expert panelists in a conversation around the use of spreadsheets in research, spreadsheets as powerful tools to handle data, and what’s available for researchers who wish to move beyond spreadsheets. Register on Eventbrite for the panel which is taking place online on Friday 5 November 2021, from 2 - 3pm GMT.
Our experts come from different research backgrounds and represent various tools, such as Lambda for Excel (Microsoft), Google Sheets, Open Refine, Filament, and languages, such as Python and R. The panel will be chaired by our very own Simon Hettrick, SSI Deputy Director.
All researchers and research software developers are welcome to join this discussion panel. We will be presenting as many views as possible from using spreadsheets as a powerful tool in research data management to discussing options for moving beyond them.
Research Software Camps
The Software Sustainability Institute runs free online Research Software Camps twice a year over the course of two weeks.
Each Camp focusses on introducing and exploring a topic around research software, thus starting discussions among various research communities.
