Update from Research IT
Do you use VMs?
Research IT are exploring the idea of building and hosting a library of virtual machine (VM) images, and container (Docker / Singularity) images with the aim of helping with a variety of common issues. These include setting up a Linux / MS Windows in a VM on your PC, problems moving a computational workflow from desktop or laptop to The CSF or to AWS / Azure or even managing R or Python modules.
Interested in the use of Virtual Reality?
Come along to the Research Lifecycle Programme meeting on the 17th of June to discuss the use of virtual and augmented reality in research across the University. The idea of this community is to share experiences and common interests and discuss ways in which we can work together to better use available resources and generate a multi-disciplinary community that can collaborate internally to then apply for research funding collectively.
Research IT Club Survey
If you have ever attended a Research IT Club we would love to hear what you thought of it. We have a very short survey open now and the responses will enable us to plan our club events for the next academic year.
