Software Evaluation Guidelines Workshop: Part 2


Come help ESIP develop software assessment guidelines for describing code maturity, project maturity and sustainability for research code and software. Our goal is to provide support and guidance to a broad range of stakeholders creating code products and to define, as a community, what aspects are important to promote for research groups and for the research community. 

In this session, we'll be discussing how the developed guidelines (from our first session) can be used to define progressions for code and project maturity. Can we define happy paths for certain activities that provide benefits for both researcher and community? How can we support code/software projects provided for reproducibility/preservation only vs those intended for reuse by the community? 

Draft guidelines

We encourage you to take a look at the draft before the session and to set up an account for making contributions/comments during the session.
