Recently, with my Software Sustainability Institute (SSI) hat on, we helped to deliver a Software Carpentry Course here at Edinburgh organised by the School of Physics and Astronomy (SOPA). My fellow instructors were my EPCC colleagues Mike Jackson and Neelofer Banglawala, and SOPA's Andy Washbrook.

As a large part of our MSc cohort comprises students from outside the UK, and with the HPC Europa 3 programme currently bringing in researchers from mainland Europe, I thought it would be nice to invite our visitors to experience some traditional Scottish culture: a ceilidh.

Applications are open for the Software Sustainability Institute's Fellowship Programme 2018. The Fellowship Programme will support you to talk about software in your research domain to a wider audience, network with others who share a passion for software in research, and learn key skills to benefit you and those you collaborate with.
The programme includes £3000 to use towards travel or conference fees over a 15-month period. You will also be able to interact with other Fellows from 2018 and previous years, thus enabling you to build a network of dynamic people throughout the UK.

This article covers what I think is a good way of taking notes, keeping track of them, and publishing them so that others can benefit from them or comment on your approach.
We often use notes to track what we have to do or have done. They might be in paper form or electronic text files. They document how we achieved our goal: the helpful URLs that put us on the right track, error and warning messages that were encountered and how they were resolved, etc. However, notes can quickly become intractable with recorded error and/or warning messages and unfathomably long URLs or, worse, they get lost.

EPCC will be at the Edinburgh International Science Festival again along with others from the University of Edinburgh. Last year we hosted a very successful Junkyard Clusters workshop where participants constructed a PC from its constituent components. This year we will be part of the drop-in activities, showing what supercomputers can do.

The Big Bang Fair, billed as the UK's largest celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths for young people, provides our Supercomputing Sleuths event with an excellent opportunity to show the benefits of supercomputing to a host of young people through a number of targeted acitivities.
