By Mario Antonioletti, Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre and The Software Sustainability Institute. In this second post, we argue that in order to have a sustainable future you must not only employ good software techniques but also ensure that you create a future workforce that can develop and/or want to use your software.
By Mario Antonioletti, Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre and The Software Sustainability Institute. Producing sustainable software is not just about employing good practice – e.g. using a revision control system, documentation, testing, etc. – but also about ensuring that, for a long term future, we can generate motivated, well-trained developers that will continue to contribute to and develop your software, as well as creating a potential set of savvy end users that will  want to use it.
