In this meetup we explore the openness of research software.

This meeting takes place in person at SURF meeting room 3.5, Hoog Catherijne, Utrecht, and includes coffee and drinks.

We will discuss the following question

  • Is it better for our community to aim for open software?
  • How can it impact your career to release your own software
  • Is it possible to release your research codes? How?
