For some November and December is a time to wind down and slow down to meet the holiday seasons at a gentle pace … but not at the Institute! The community team with the help of the wider Institute, fellows and friends was busy putting together and finalising the building blocks that would enable a most productive 2016 for research software advocacy!
Read on to find out more more about Fellows 2016 and Collaborations Workshop 2016 (CW16) to see who we are supporting research software related activities in … you guessed it!... 2016! (and beyond).
In addition there are two reports from our Fellows around the rise of Python in HPC and software training.
Previously we got ahead of ourselves and reported on the amazing face-to-face selection day that took place for Fellows 2016, if you missed that during the last update you can read about what happened.
In December we announced our Fellows for 2016. We have 17 new Fellows working from a variety of different areas of research and career stages. You will be hearing more from them no doubt in 2016 via the blog and news items about their activities. If you would like to meet them and perhaps even build a collaboration with them, then most of them will be at the Collaborations Workshop 2016 (CW16)
