By Catherine Smith, Software Sustainability Institute Fellow, University of Birmingham, and Iain Emsley, University of Sussex On the final day of Carpentry Connect Manchester 2019, we co-led two workshop sessions to bring together some of the conversations already taking place about teaching technical skills relevant to Digital Humanities within the Carpentries framework.
Only eight days to go until the fourth annual RSE conference begins in Birmingham!
By Catherine Smith, Software Sustainability Institute Fellow As part of my Software Sustainability Institute Fellowship, I was able to attend the Digital Humanities (DH2019) conference which this year was held in Utrecht. This is not a conference I attend regularly as it tends not to focus on the technical side of digital humanities. However, this year there was a workshop which I was particularly interested in attending.
In preparation for its formal launch, the Society of Researching Software Engineering has launched a new website. There, you can find all the information about the Society and its mission, including how to join, links to RSE groups around the world, future and past events, and job vacancies.
On 13 June 2019, Simon Hettrick, deputy director of the Software Sustainability Institute, presented the work done so far in the United Kingdom and elsewhere to promote, recognise and reward the work of research software engineers. The recording from the webinar is now available on YouTube.
In the third episode of the Nature careers podcast series on workplace technologies, Simon Hettrick, Software Sustainability Institute Deputy Director, tells Julie Gould about the role of research software engineers (RSEs). Simon also talks about the history of the research software engineer as a career path, including the birth of RSE groups and the annual RSE Conference, what they do, how their skills can support researchers with limited coding skills, and how you can become one.

The Society of Research Software Engineering is running a free workshop for aspiring RSE leaders. It will provide you with the contacts and expertise to run your own RSE Group or become a leader in the RSE community. At the workshop you will network with established RSE leaders, learn about some of the challenges facing RSEs and RSE Groups, and take part in discussions about the solutions to these challenges.
