We need software: it’s an integral part of modern research across all disciplines. However, harnessing the opportunities that software provides, whilst conducting reliable research, requires the influx of new skills. In turn, this requires a re-think of the roles that make up our research groups. Academia has yet to adapt to software-reliant research, which leads to missed opportunities and, more shamefully, disregard for the very people on whom we rely for help.

The Software Sustainability Institute in collaboration with ARCHER and Women in HPC is organising the first Software Carpentry workshop for Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) in the UK. The event will take place at the University of Manchester on 14-15 December 2015.
Software Carpentry's mission is to help researchers get more work done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic lab skills for scientific computing. This hands-on workshop will cover basic concepts and tools, including program design, version control, data management, and task automation. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems.
