By Nokome Bentley, Stencila, Aleksandra Pawlik, Stencila. Introduction by Raniere Silva, Software Sustainability Institute. In 2017, the Software Sustainability Institute organised the Docker Containers for Reproducible Research Workshop. Two years later, containers are more present today in research, powering many platforms where coding is being developed and executed. "Dockter: A container image builder for researchers" was originally published on opensource.com and is replicated here with permission from the authors.

This two-part post was simultaneously published at Cradle in Caricature.  In Part One of this blog series on the House of Lords Science and Technology Committee  inquiry into forensic science, I discussed oral evidence pertaining to digital forensics – a branch of forensic science concerned with the recovery and investigation of material found in digital devices – and their relevance to my home discipline, History.
By Sarah Maddox, Technical Writer This post was originally published at Ffeathers. This week I’m attending a conference titled Collaborations Workshop 2019, run by the Software Sustainability Institute of the UK.

The Jupyter Community Workshop on Dashboarding with Jupyter will take place from the 3rd to the 6th June at the Interdisciplinary Research Center in Paris (8, 8bis Rue Charles V, 75004). The workshop will last four days, with hands-on discussions, hacking sessions, and technical presentations. The goal of the event is to foster collaboration and the sharing of knowledge between downstream library authors and contributors, and favour upstream contributions.
