Today, researchers in the sciences, humanities and arts, all use code as an everyday part of their work. Often such code is written using the popular Python programming language. Thanks to generous funding from the Software Sustainability Institute, PyCon UK will have a track for scientists and other researchers who want to improve their coding skills, learn from colleagues, and discover new ways in which Python and its community can support their work.
The Science track will run from Saturday 19 - Monday 21 September 2015, in Coventry.
We welcome researchers from all disciplines and at all levels of coding expertise. and offer three days of learning, collaboration and fun! Our conference regularly attracts more than 300 Python programmers from around the UK, Europe and the world. It’s a perfect opportunity to meet other scientists using Python and collaborate with professional programmers. We’re a diverse bunch: our ranks include many different types of programmer, from secondary school teachers and web developers to embedded systems engineers and Python core developers. You won’t find a better place to stimulate your programming skills!

The Mozilla Fellowships for Science present a unique opportunity for researchers who want to influence the future of open science and data sharing within their communities.
Apply now to become an inaugural 2015 Mozilla Fellow for Science. The application call is now open. It will remain open until 14 August 2015 at 11:59PM EDT. More information on how to apply can be found below.
We're looking for researchers with a passion for open source and data sharing, already working to shift research practice to be more collaborative, iterative and open. Fellows will spend 10 months as community catalysts at their institutions, mentoring the next generation of open data practitioners and researchers and building lasting change in the global open science community.
Throughout their fellowship year, chosen fellows will receive training and support from Mozilla to hone their skills around open source and data sharing. They will also craft code, curriculum and other learning resources that help their local communities learn open data practices, and teach forward to their peers.
For more information, visit the Mozilla Science Lab website.

Greg Wilson from Software Carpentry said:
"We are very pleased to announce the addition of a lesson on automation and Make, which was created by the SSI's Mike Jackson and Steve Crouch. The repository contains everything you need to teach it, and pull requests are very welcome."
If you're interested in teaching (or indeed learning about) Make, please take a look at the lesson.
