It's a transformative time for data science and eResearch in New Zealand right now. Projects across all domains become more data-intensive and we're seeing contemporary Machine Learning and Deep Learning techniques become more 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.

As part of the eResearch NZ 2021 Conference, the Australasia Chapter of Women in High Performance Computing (WHPC) hosted a Birds-of-a-Feather session to share results from its recent community survey and discuss next steps for the Chapter in 2021. The session was co-hosted by the Chapter's founding organisations: NeSI, National Computational Infrastructure Australia (NCI Australia), Pawsey Supercomputing Centre, Monash University, and Australasian eResearch Organisations (AeRO).

Carpentry Connect 2021 was a great success with 40 people joining to learn from and network with fellow Carpentries community members. The event agenda was carefully crafted by a team of local Carpentries leaders to be interesting and engaging to everyone in the community - no matter the experience level or role within the Carpentries ecosystem. Instructors, coordinators, helpers, and fans were all warmly welcomed!
