Welcome to the monthly newsletter for the Research Software Engineering Community at The University of Sheffield.
Why not come to a Code Clinic? We’re keen to hear from you.
Code Clinics are fortnightly supported sessions run by the RSE team and IT Services’ Research and Innovation IT (ITS R&I) team. They are open to anyone at TUOS writing code for research to get help with programming problems and general advice on best practices.
At each session, members of the RSE and/or ITS R&I teams will be available to review code, advise, troubleshoot, and suggest ways to improve your computational workflows.
LunchBytes are a monthly series of short talks from the research community on research software, data, and infrastructure.
In May’s edition of LunchBytes on the 19th of May, we’ll be getting together to show off our favourite tools that help with using git and GitHub. Think: command-line tools, IDE plugins, GitHub/Lab features, etc.
If you have a git tool you’d like to let others know about - get in touch with the host at d.wilby [at] sheffield.ac.uk
LunchBytes are organised by and for the research software community at The University of Sheffield. If you’d like to curate a session on a topic or present something, get in touch by emailing email@example.com - Or suggest topics on the jamboard.
Jupyter everywhere - Embed Jupyter notebooks in any web page with Jupyterlite.
What’s next for AlphaFold and the AI protein-folding revolution - DeepMind software that can predict the 3D shape of proteins is already changing biology.
Linting - What is all the fluff about? - This blogpost is written by the newest member of the RSE team. If you’ve been dabbling in programming for a while you may have heard of “linting your code” which is a process of static code analysis to remove the “fluff” from your code.
RSECon22 - RSECon2022 will be held in the Frederick Douglass Centre at Newcastle University.
