Code review is known to be an effective way to improve software quality, foster peer learning and develop common ownership of a research software project. In practice, a code review is nothing else than a conversation between the author of the code and somebody else providing feedback on coding practices, readability or other aspects of code quality. If this sounds straightforward, an effective code review routine can be tricky to establish. Here are five tips for you to get started with code reviews, or get more of them.
Congratulations to SSI Fellow Malvika Sharan for being named a Jisc Community Champion!
Last Year Paola Corrales and Yanina Bellini Saibene members from the MetaDocencia community offered the workshop From Spreadsheet to R at the Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet. Later today (17 May 2022, they're teaching the same workshop but in Spanish (Desde las Hojas de Cálculo a R) at the Research Software Camp: Next Steps in Coding, for the benefit of Spanish-speaking research communities. In this blog post, they tell us more about MetaDocencia.
The call for full papers for the RSE-ESCIENCE-2022 is open until Tuesday 31 May.
The workshop is for anyone who wishes to update their teaching skills.

Register for a free workshop on R for Reproducible Scientific Analysis as part of our upcoming Research Software Camp: Next Steps in Coding.

Learn a core set of established, intermediate-level software development skills and best practices for working as part of a research team.
Within the digital preservation community, the term computational access is popping up more and more frequently. It is often linked to other terms such as artificial intelligence, data mining and deep neural networks. However, there is often little understanding of what these terms actually mean and how they relate to each other.
The N8 Centre of Excellence in Computationally Intensive Research (N8 CIR) and the Software Sustainability Institute (SSI) have entered into a partnership to support and promote our shared aims around training, workforce development, and equality, diversity and inclusion.
Rachael Ainsworth, SSI Community Manager, share some highlights from the four-day virtual event.
