NSF: Innovative Training Enabled by a Research Software Engineering Community of Trainers (INTERSECT)


Project Description

This project offers workshops that provide training activities aimed at intermediate/advanced Research Software Developers.  The goal of INTERSECT is to improve the software skills of those building the research software of tomorrow so that the software is more reliable, accurate, and sustainable. The result of this training will arm a subset of Research Software Developers with the skills and knowledge they need to enter into the growing CI Professional role of a Research Software Engineer (RSE). RSEs, those that combine domain specific knowledge with advanced software engineering skills, are a critical component of the workforce required for the cyberinfrastructure challenges in the coming years. The training material generated by INTERSECT will be collected into a single, cohesive, community-driven framework ensuring the sustainability of the products and extending the educational impact of INTERSECT beyond the length of the project.
