Spreadsheets are ubiquitous across academia and industry. Although mistakes can have real world consequences from genomics to austerity, sometimes you just have to laugh at the day-to-day trials and tribulations of trying to get spreadsheets to just. work.
Welcome to the Research Software Camp: Beyond the spreadsheet! From today to the 12th November 2021, we'll be exploring the use of spreadsheets in research, tools that are available to manage them, and how to move beyond them. The Camp is hosted online over the course of two week, and it’s completely free to access.
A presentation on 'In Defence of the Spreadsheet: Data and historical research' is now available to watch as part of our Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet.
From the organising committee to our many volunteers, we would like to thank everyone who made the Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet happen.
Registration is now open for the workshops in our Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet running from 1- 12 November.
We hosted live workshops and recorded presentations as part of the Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet (online from 1 to 12 November 2021). All of the workshops and presentations were prepared and delivered by the speakers at the panel discussion "Do we have the right tools for research?".
Registrations to the panel discussion: “Do we have the right tools for research?” Are now open! This session is part of the Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadhseet. It will take place on Friday 5th November 2021 from 2 to 3pm GMT.
As part of the Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet, volunteer research software engineers have been mentoring volunteer researchers using spreadsheets to help them learn a language of their choice and explore various ways of working with and moving beyond spreadsheets.
Registration is now open for the panel discussion “Do we have the right tools for research?” taking place online on Friday 5th November 2021, from 2 to 3pm GMT, as part of the Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet, organised by the Software Sustainability Institute.
