Here here, Deb.

One of the questions is whether we are focusing on training people or on specific software packages and at what proportions.
Anshu Dubey
01:21:23
Training is top priority, but transition from R&D to sustainability is still an issue.
Anshu Dubey
01:24:33
That so resonates Deb.
Keita Teranishi
01:25:27
Yes! No incentives and. Encouragement even though lots of people found the importance earlier….

Alas, absolutely right. It was a hard fight to change the conversation about ‘HPC-enough'
Addi Malviya-Thakur
01:35:00
great point @Deb!
Johannes Blaschke
01:35:49
In addition to what Deb said: this kind of partnership with HEP and Astro is important to make sure that the technology and best practices does not become too fractured between science domains

I also like Anshu’s first question of “Why has our awareness of software’s importance and impact changed?”
William Hart

+1 @Addi Software capabilities are now viewed as strategic differentiators.

US Research Software Engineering: https://us-rse.org/A resource for academics to learn essential software engineering practices. It focuses on students, but all are welcome.
Johannes Blaschke

+1 Tim — this isn’t so much a problem at the Labs, but the fact that most software development at universities is done by grad students and postdocs means that every 2-5 years, we loose the institutional knowledge that is essential to maintain software long-term

Also consider that Einstein was a patent clerk.

I have to leave - I have a meeting
Mike Heroux
01:55:31
Thanks @Deb!
Deb Agarwal
01:55:37
Thanks Mike for bringing us all together. This has been a great panel - thanks to all the analysts!
William Hart
01:55:47
It sounds like Anshu and I have had similar careers. :)
Anshu Dubey
01:56:46
You are also more of research software engineering by inclination?
William Hart
01:57:06
Yep!
William Godoy
01:57:45
Bye, thanks! I enjoyed it a lot
Elaine Raybourn

Thanks all!
