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.

By ‘skills’ we mean everything from programming languages through specification, methods and testing (to name just some). Ian Cottam describes how we’ve made it easy to find out.
Thank you to everyone who came along to the first Research IT club of the academic year. If you were unable to attend, all the presentations are now available at the links below. We had some great presentations on how our RSEs built a searchable database for Alzheimer’s Research and the first case study of our Cloud bursting in action.
