From the organising committee to our many volunteers, we would like to thank everyone who made the Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet happen. 
Are you involved in a project that falls within the Economics and Social Research Council (ESRC) remit? Are you an early-career or junior researcher (PhD student)? Reach out and have your voice heard! 
We're hosting 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 have been prepared and will be 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.

Peter is a consultant programmer for the DataLab at Oxford University, where he is part of the team that built OpenSAFELY, a highly secure, transparent, open-source software platform for analysis of electronic health records data.

He is a Fellow of the Python Software Foundation, and chaired PyCon UK in 2017 and 2018.

Have you recently started writing your own code? Is your code related to research or a research project in any way? Would you like to get critical but kind feedback on your code? Could do with a second pair of eyes to track down a bug? Come to our Code Review Clinic! The Code Review Clinic will run on week 2 (8-12 November 2021) of the Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet. There will be one session in the morning and one in the afternoon from Monday to Friday. Our aim is to allow first time/beginner coders to get general but targeted feedback on their code from an expert. 
We are dedicated to providing a welcoming and supportive environment for all people, regardless of background or identity. By taking part in the activities of the Research Software Camp, participants accept to abide by the Software Sustainability Institute's Code of Conduct, and accept the procedures by which any Code of Conduct incidents are resolved. 
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.
As part of the SSI’s Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet, we’re calling for blog post and/or guide proposals.
