Research Software Engineering in Health Research – Why you should care and how to get started

In health research, we are increasingly reliant on research software. Many of us are developing data analysis scripts, code, or even entire software packages. If you or your team members write code and want to ensure good quality of this code, this webinar is for you. 

We will discuss why research software engineering is relevant for your work and how to get started with simple, yet helpful practices. Drawing from real-life examples in health research projects, we will illustrate key concepts. Finally we will give an overview on the free learning resource on research software engineering provided by HDR UK.
