The Software Sustainability Institute
This year’s RSECon in Newcastle (6th-8th September 2022) was my first time attending RSECon as an RSE. The reason why I say “as an RSE,” is because way back in 2019, whilst I was still an astronomy PhD student, I managed to convince my supervisor that I should attend RSECon, because, hey, this might be a future career path for me – and it actually became my career path at the end of last year.
In this episode, the second on the theme of nuclear fusion, Peter Schmidt meets with Simon Pinches. Simon works at ITER at the test reactor site in Cadarache, near Aix-en-Provence in Southern France.

"It adds development time, doing things right, but it's worth it. Our code is miles away from where it was. [The work has] really made a profound change to the way we do coding, even down to the way I write lines of code. We now understand the complexity involved in making things run smoothly – it's really been a very good learning experience"
