"software is essential for research, thus domain experts + programmers need to collaborate & convincing stories + numbers to build networks, groups, organisations & careers"

@AlysBrett's talk at #deRSE19


"Scientific progress needs changeable, testable, documented software, but focus on such quality is not currently rewarded in academia."

#Carpentries teach this, but #cleancode is a longer road to take.

"RSE groups that support research departments brings benefits: stable careers, peer group, knowledge exchange, training scientists, etc. #UK is well ahead in establishing these. But also regional interconnections are important (see Wales-wide HPC people)." #deRSE19
