Despite the range of challenges 2020 presented for research community gatherings last year, NeSI's re-branding and hosting of the New Zealand Research Software Engineering (NZ RSE) Conference was a resounding success for strengthening connections between those working on the cusp of technical and research domains.
From April - May 2021, NeSI hosted a ‘NeSI know-how’ webinar mini-series. These short & sharp sessions shared a taste for what is possible when you work on NeSI platforms.Each session was under one hour and covered a popular topic for getting started on the NeSI HPC platform.

If you haven’t heard, there have been massive improvements to the high performance computing (HPC) Carpentry lessons and now is a great time to join the community!
It's a transformative time for data science and eResearch in New Zealand right now. Projects across many domains are becoming more data-intensive, and we're seeing contemporary Machine Learning and Deep Learning techniques being widely adopted.
High performance computing (HPC) enthusiasts around the world have been hard at work improving the HPC Carpentry curriculum so that there is a Carpentries style introduction to using HPC systems effectively. Of course, the purpose of an HPC Carpentry workshop is not to give an exhaustive course on parallel programming in just two days’ teaching time. Instead, the workshop is intended to give students a good introduction and overview of the tools available and how to use them effectively.
Aotearoa New Zealand's response to Covid-19 – a global success story in many ways – was achievable through collaborative research efforts, targeted modelling, rapid genome sequencing, and access to powerful eResearch infrastructure.
