A one-day meeting will be help at the University of Leeds on 30 January, from 10.30am – 4pm, to look at similarities, challenges and opportunities for research software engineering groups across the N8 Research Partnership.

The complexity and difficulty of installing scientific software can often hamper its uptake and use within research communities. Douglas Lowe, a Research Software Engineer in Research IT, has been working with Dr Eric Prestat from the School of Natural Sciences to solve this problem for Prismatic, a cross-platform research software toolkit.

Imperial College London is recruiting a developer to join its Research Computing Service (RCS) as a Research Software Engineer (RSE).

Vanessa Villamia Sochat, an engineer for the Stanford Research Computing Center, has begun creating a glossary of terms just for research software engineering.

 

“The near-ubiquity of software [in research] means that it is not possible to disentangle the quality of the software from the quality of the research.

By Mark Woodbridge, Research Software Engineering Team Lead, Imperial College London We previously described three RSE-related use cases for Microsoft’s Azure platform, ranging in deployment granularity from VMs to individual JavaScript functions. In this post we’ll explain further how we use those and other Azure services to complement our on-premise infrastructure – helping us to deliver our RSE projects faster.
