The Software Sustainability Institute

PyConUK afforded me a great oppportunity to converse with fellow technicians, including those working in HE.  Carwyn, based at Bangor University, reminded me about the Software Sustainability Institute, based at the universities of Edinburgh, Manchester, Oxford and Southampton.  Whose aim is to support better research by helping researchers to build and use better software.

Git stash

Still loving git stash.

Being able to split out and reapply change sets onto a fresh pull is very liberating. Trying out small changes or reapplying local settings, whilst easily keeping abreast with upstream changes can be essential when working with two or more other developers on the same code base.
