The 2nd Working towards Sustainable Software for Science: Practice and Experiences workshop (WSSSPE) will be held in New Orleans on Sunday, November 16. The community was invited to submit short actionable papers for use in designing the workshop.
Getting a community to adopt better practices doesn’t usually happen overnight. The ASCL has looked at previous efforts to create code libraries or registries to try to find common barriers that may have inhibited widespread use of these services; the ASCL also has looked to specific management techniques adapted from business practice to encourage change. These findings and change management strategies are discussed in our #WSSSPE 2 paper.
The WSSSPE site lists all of the freely downloadable accepted papers.
