ANDS-Nectar-RDS have jointly funded 8 Data Enhanced Virtual Laboratories (DEVL). The DEVLs aim to provide data and software infrastructure to meet the needs of Australian research communities and to enhance research collaboration and outcomes.More at: https://www.ands-nectar-rds.org.au/researchdomainprogram
In June & July's TechTalk events, representatives from each of the DEVLs will introduce their projects from a developers' perspective: the problem the project is trying to solve, the tech stacks deployed and to be developed, the approaches of their software development and community engagement while developing tools and applications.
The demonstration/discussion of 8 projects are scheduled as follows:
DEVL #1 June (1st): Astronomy (Robert Shen), Marine Science (Roger Proctor), Terrestrial Ecology (Gerhard Weis), and Climate (Clare Richards).
DEVL #2 July (6th): GeoScience (Carsten Friedrich), Characterisation (Lance Wilson), BioScience (Jeff Christiansen), and Culture and Community (Sarah Nisbet, Alexis Tindall).
