Digital Research Conversations – Love your Code/Software

Software is increasingly important for researchers, with both research staff and students finding themselves needing to write and develop their own software to produce data (e.g. through simulations) or analyse their results. There is a need to understand how to manage software used in research, including its curation, citation and how to store and share … Continue reading “Digital Research Conversations – Love your Code/Software”
