The first Research IT club of 2020 takes place next month on the 12th of Feb. Come along to see our services in action through researcher presentations and to hear the latest research IT news. The February presentations see Velson Horie from Manchester Museum describe online image comparison software and accompanying website produced for him by Research IT.
The complexity and difficulty of installing scientific software can often hamper it’s uptake and use within research communities. Douglas Lowe, a Research Software Engineer in Research IT, has been working with Dr Eric Prestat from the School of Natural Sciences to solve this problem for Prismatic, a cross-platform research software toolkit.
This month we have a bumper collection of top tips from our Research Software Engineers (RSEs)! They are passing on a selection of good practice tips which they advise all researchers who develop or write software, to consider adopting.
This month’s top tip is by Ian Hinder, Research Software Engineer (RSE) in Research IT, and focuses on keeping your research ﬁles safe by storing them in the Research Data Storage system provided by IT Services.
