  • There Are Not Enough RSEs in the World

    There are 210,000 researchers in the UK and a significant number (at least a third) rely on software to conduct their research. How do we support this huge community with only a few thousand RSEs in the UK? One option is to invest effort into creating local communities that complement the work of RSEs by dealing with the straightforward questions asked by researchers. Researchers require help with their software, but it is not always the in-depth software engineering that we have come to expect from RSEs. RSE Group leaders are inundated by requests for software engineering, but also by requests for simple help: which tool to use, what practices to follow, and general pointers on improving code. There are also requests for help with general, philosophical problems that do not fit well with the paid-for service model of many RSE Groups. One solution, trialled by my group at the University of Southampton and others, is to create a Research Software Community comprising RSEs and “researcher-developers”. By bringing these people together, they support each other. In this talk we will discuss our successes and describe how a network of these communities could be created across academia to support researchers and RSEs.
