The INCF/OCNS Software Working Group (WG) is happy to announce its first set of “Dev sessions” where members of the developer teams of commonly used neuroscience software will introduce their software and then discuss their development pipelines.
The aim of these sessions is to stimulate discussion of the development practices and tools used by different teams to improve the software we use while also improving our knowledge of these practices and tools. We also hope to encourage more users of these tools to contribute to their development to ensure their longevity.
Two sessions are currently scheduled:
Marcel Stimberg (@mstimberg) will speak about the development of the Brian
simulator on Feb 11, 2021 1700 UTC. Zoom link: Launch Meeting - Zoom
Ankur Sinha (@sanjayankur31) will speak about the development of the NeuroFedora
Linux distribution on Feb 16, 2021 1700 UTC. Zoom link: Launch Meeting - Zoom
(To prevent spamming/trolling during these sessions, you will need to login to your Zoom account to join them. These sessions will be recorded and made available for later viewing also.)
Sessions on GeNN and Neurolib will also follow shortly.
The WG is a community based group that is open to everyone at all levels of their careers (academic or otherwise). Please introduce yourself to the community on our channels to get involved.
