Dimitrios Theodorakis

Foundation Scientific Software Engineer, Met Office (UK National Weather Service)

In climate modelling we have a need for speed! At RSECon24 I guarantee you'll learn new tricks to optimise your code, build your network, and get tips from RSEs in other fields that use the same languages as you. In addition to workshop sessions which have directly benefitted my day-to-day work, I also met tons of potential collaborators many of whom I now work with to deliver new software training with tools I discovered at RSECon.

Prof. Daniel S. Katz

Chief Scientist at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

RSECon has given me the opportunity to talk to members of the UK and global RSE community, to learn about issues and solutions that I can both contribute and adapt, and to think about new research challenges. RSECon is the closest we currently have to a global meeting on research and issues around research software engineering. It is the place where you are most likely to find members of the global community researching research software.

Matthew Bluteau

PhD, MBCS, Senior RSE at UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA)

It isn't only RSEs that should be interested in RSECon24. I absolutely recommend this conference to anyone in science or engineering who might be called 'the software person' in their group or who is interested in learning how they can improve their research software. RSECon is highly interdisciplinary, researchers from different fields can exchange useful information about computational techniques that are applicable to a wide variety of problems. What excites me most is finding those unique conversations where you feel completely at home and seen by all of those involved. Finding common ground across a wide range of topics is something the RSE community does incredibly well.

Simon Li

Senior Research Infrastructure Engineer at the Health Informatics Centre, University of Dundee

The RSE community is a great bridge between different disciplines and cultures. You might be working on something very niche, but others at RSECon will be using the same tools and processes, and can give you inspiration and new ideas.

Stefanie Reuter

HPC-RSE, Cambridge Open Zettascale Lab

RSECon24 is a great opportunity to get together with my team for an extended period of time and to learn about different developments and training opportunities. A big part of RSECon is social events to allow time for interesting conversations. I like how open and friendly the RSE community is.
