The Software Sustainability Institute

Blog

As part of the inaugural SSI Research Software Camp on research accessibility, we’ve gathered some useful resources. Research accessibility is a broad topic and this list gives a taster of the different areas.

Dr Peter Schmidt, Senior Research Software Developer, University College London tells us about two podcasts he is involved in and how he hopes they will strengthen the RSE community.
We take a look back at some of the highlights at the Institute from last year, and some of the exciting things happening in 2021.

"We were already following a lot of best practice and it was very good to get this confirmation. We're not computer scientists and don't come from a software development background - we're all scientific programmers - so it was good to get some confirmation that what we do is on the right track"
