EPCC and EXDCI-2Funded by EXDCI-2, EPCC is organising a 2-day workshop in Edinburgh on 8-9 July 2019 to present ideas on how science and engineering can be supported from Raspberry Pis to large scale supercomputers.

LabBook being used with a tablet and stylusLabBook is a mobile app and online service that allows users to securely record and share their experiment notes.

I've been working with them to provide advice on the LabBook software, how it is developed, and how it can be moved towards an open source product.
