2020 has been quite a year so congratulations for making it to the end! This year has certainly demonstrated that RSE-AUNZ is a strong and resilient community. While everyone probably had some initial jitters, we all settled into our new ways of working and collaborating.
From the RSE-AUNZ community perspective, we organised a few well-attended events.
In a session called RSE Impact Stories , Justin Baker (CSIRO) chaired a discussion with two experienced RSEs:
A global collaboration has established the International Series of Online Research Software Events, aka SORSE (pronounced ‘sauce’). The goal is to provide an opportunity for RSEs to develop and grow their skills, build new collaborations and engage with RSEs worldwide.
RSE-AUNZ, in association with the ARDC is planning to run regular online events on topics of interest to the RSE community.
The RSE Mini-conference on the 21st of October 2019 in Brisbane, Queensland is the first time in Australasia that the Research Software Engineer (RSE) community will bring together its members to share experiences and knowledge at their own conference. This is important as the 2018International RSE Survey conducted among Australian and New Zealand researchers found that the majority of the respondents wanted networking as the top priority of an RSE organisation.
In 2018, the RSE-AUNZ Association participated in an international survey  organized by the Software Sustainability Institute in the UK, with questions tailored for AU and NZ contexts .
The Collaborative Conference on Computational and Data Intensive Science (C3DIS) 2019 was on from the 6th to the 10th of May. We asked for members of the RSE community to volunteer to help us run a Hacky Hour in the evening of Wednesday the 8th May and to also extend an invitation to the Friday the 10th all day RSE workshop.
We are participating in the international survey for RSEs simultaneously run across Australia, Canada, Germany, Netherlands, New Zealand, South Africa, UK and USA. The purpose of this survey is to collect information about people who develop research software. This survey gives you the opportunity to express your views about your current job and your career path, and constitutes a first step towards identifying the key characteristics of the RSE community in Australia and New Zealand.
Hi there and welcome to the RSE Community in Australia and New Zealand.
