Following on from the success of the Software Writing Retreat we are trialling a series of 2-hour writing workshops every week until the Christmas vacation. Come join us where we will provide a dedicated time and place to focus on writing software/scripts/analysis code for research.

This style of workshop has proven useful and popular when it comes to grant and paper writing, so we want to trial it for writing code. Each session provides focused time with accountability and encouragement. Each session will begin with a quick "stand-up" to state what you hope to achieve during the session (for example, document a function, fix a bug in your code, write code to create a plot or analyse a piece of data). We will end by having a quick review of what we managed to achieve.

An RSE (Research Software Engineer) will be there each week to provide advice and help if required.
