“What do you wish you had known when you started?” This was a question asked during the 2020 Software Sustainability Institute Collaborations Workshop session that caused a (Zoom) room of research software engineers to pause and scratch their heads.
The recordings of sessions from Collaborations Workshop 2020 (CW20) are now available to watch on Youtube. Recordings include the keynotes, lightning talks, mini-workshops and hack day project demos.
We are thrilled to announce that Dr Becca Wilson will be one of our two keynote speakers during Collaborations Workshop 2020 and will help participants think about the workshop theme of Data Privacy.

Inspired by the videos created by Sustain during their 2018 Summit, we asked some of the Collaborations Workshop 2019 attendees to share their thoughts about research software sustainability. Each video contains a question relating to software in research, and each interviewee shared their views with us.
