About the Research Software Developers Network

Is part of your role developing software or electronic data for research, in any academic discipline? Would you like to meet others like you, share experiences, and learn from each other? Would you like help finding similar roles when your current contract ends? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then the RSDN is for you.

Or are you a researcher or manager who needs help with software development for a project? Would you like somewhere to go for informal expert advice? Do you struggle to recruit people with the skills you need? Would you like access to a pool of talented individuals already employed by the University? If so, then the RSDN can help you.

We welcome involvement from all interested in these topics, in all parts of the University, whether you are a graduate student, or academic or support staff. Register to get the most out of this site and join the network.

RSE conference

Thursday, 7 September 2017 - 9:00am to Friday, 8 September 2017 - 5:00pm

The RSE Conference is the only conference to focus exclusively on the issues that affect people who write and use software in research. It is not a standard academic conference! We welcome researchers, but we also want to hear from people who may not typically attend conferences. It’s a community conference: get involved and help us build the RSE Community.
