Send us a Text Message.The Collaborations Workshop, run by the Software Sustainability Institute https://www.software.ac.uk/ is a long-running institution. I had the pleasure of going there in May 2024 for the first time. It was an exciting, but also exhausting, couple of days. The 3 themes focused on AI/ML in science, environmental sustainability and citizen science.Here is a report on the workshop with a bunch of interviews:Arfon Smith from GitHub/CopilotBecky Osselton from Newcastle Univer...
Send us a Text Message.My guest in this episode is Greg Wilson, who co-founded the Carpentries in 1998 together with Brent Gorda. Since then, the Carpentries have gone global teaching essential computing and data skills and training the next generation of teachers. Greg stepped down from the Carpentries a while ago, but he still feels passionate about their mission and goals.Links:https://carpentries.org/ The Home page about all things Carpentrieshttps://third-bit.com Greg Wilson's homep...
Send us a Text Message.In dieser Folge geht es um die Frage, wie man Software in wissenschaftlichen Artikeln zitieren kann. Die Antwort: das Citation File Format (CFF) - an dem mein Gast Stephan Druskat maßgeblich mitgewirkt hat. Stephan und ich hatten uns auf der letzten UK RSE Konferenz in Swansea in einer der Pausen zu einem Schwätzchen getroffen.Inzwischen wird das CFF von etlichen Organisationen wie z.B. GitHub, Zenodo und Zotero unterstützt und das eScience Center in den Niederlan...
Send us a Text Message.Property based testing can help you make your tests more effective and your code more robust. Together with my guests Duncan McGregor and Nicholas del Grosso we talk about what property based testing is and in particular go into one widely used implementation for Python - the Hypothesis library. Here are a few links:https://increment.com/testing/in-praise-of-property-based-testing/ from David MacIver (creator of hypothesis) about the benefits of property based test...
Send us a Text Message.In this episode I talk about two different aspects of diversity in tech and in research software engineering in particular. First we hear from Jeremy Cohen, who has been running the DiveRSE seminar series since 2022 and is the co-author on a paper on the subject (link below). Then I talk to Michael McLeod, who is telling us about the role LGBTQ+ people play in tech. Linkshttps://diverse-rse.github.io the DiveRSE seminar serieshttps://arxiv.org/abs/2104.01712 the pa...
Send us a Text Message.How can we make computing environmentally more sustainable. Meet Loïc Lannelongue, who - together with Michael Inouye - created the Green Algorithms project. Amongst other things, it allows us to estimate the carbon footprint of our algorithms and computing jobs. The project has been awarded the HDR UK Susannah Boddie Award for Impact of the Year in March 2024.
