It’s the end of the second and final week of our inaugural Research Software Camp, which has focussed on different aspects of research accessibility. We’ve explored the topic through a mixture of live sessions, guides on our website and discussions on social media.
You can read about what happened in week one in our previous blog post, and read on for some of the highlights from week two.
We hosted a workshop run by The Turing Way on how to ‘boost your research reproducibility with Binder’. During the workshop participants learned about reproducible computing environments, why they're important, and how to use mybinder.org to help make their research reproducible.
Based on the advice from the The Turing Way workshop, we published a guide on our website of top tips for making the most out of Binder by Emma Karoune et al. on behalf of the Turing Way. This gives helpful advice on improving research reproducibility using Binder.
We’ve been sharing useful content and having discussions on our Twitter and LinkedIn pages. You can see a curated selection of content on Wakelet. Continue the conversation on research accessibility using #RSCamps.
We welcome anyone involved with research and research software from all career stages to attend our Research Software Camps. The next Research Software Camp is likely to take place in July 2021. We’ll introduce and explore a specific topic relevant to research and research software. If you have topics you’d like us to explore, send us your suggestions and we’ll consider them for future Camps.
