Research Software Engineering: the growth of a movement

Alys Brett


The importance of Research Software Engineering as a role, a discipline and a community is becoming more and more widely recognised because it is essential for harnessing the opportunities and of modern, computational research. Alys Brett is head of the Software Engineering Group at the UK Atomic Energy Authority and founding president of the Society for Research Software Engineering. She has just handed over the leadership of the Society after several years in that role. In this talk she will share the experience from the UK of building recognition for the RSE role and developing groups, career structures and communities, and reflect on where we are now with this international movement.
