Following the RSECon23 conference, on Friday 8 September at Swansea University Bay Campus there will be a satellite event looking at the training RSEs provide to the research community. 

This event is aimed at RSEs who provide training to the research community or are interested in starting to provide training.

In this latest episode of Code For Thought, SSI Fellow Peter Schmidt speaks with Teresa Gomez-Diaz from Université Paris Gustav-Eiffel, east of Paris, France. For a long time Teresa has been promoting Open Science and last year she talked on this show about the need for licences in research software.

In this episode of Code For Thought, SSI Fellow Peter Schmidt talks with data scientist and entrepreneur Nick Radcliffe about the importance of testing your data. Test driven development is a familiar concept to research software engineers. Test driven data analysis puts the same emphasis on validating and testing data for your AI app. They also dive into the Python library of the same name, tdda.

In this latest episode of Code For Thought, SSI Fellow Peter Schmidt speaks with UK RSE Conference organising committee members Sam Mangham and Ed Bennett. The conversation sheds light on what happens behind the scenes and what it takes to organise and run a conference. It also explores how participants can contribute to the success of this UK RSE Conference and future events.
