17:01 pdurbin "I am drawing a blank in my memory, but was there a site/organization out there specifically geared towards connecting developers and scientists?" http://logs.glob.uno/?c=mozilla%23scienc‚Äčelab&s=14+Feb+2015&e=14+Feb+2015
17:25 sivoais all I can think of is <http://www.software.ac.uk/>
17:33 sivoais I'm really liking using IPerl (yeah, yeah...even though I wrote it...)
17:33 sivoais but now I kinda wish I had that units-of-measure library I was designing done :-P
17:39 sivoais hmm, it looks like I can participate in GSoC even though I'm graduating soon
18:00 pdurbin huh. The Software Sustainability Institute. interesting
18:02 pdurbin seems more about building up the software skills of scientists (which is awesome) than connecting developers and scientists
18:04 sivoais they have this too: <http://www.software.ac.uk/open-call>
18:04 sivoais "The Open Call is a free service that allows researchers to propose joint software consultancy projects with the Institute."
18:06 pdurbin "The ideal project will involves the transfer of best practices and the development of new capabilities within your group."
18:06 pdurbin sivoais: that does sound quite nice
18:07 sivoais I mentioned this in here before, but I'm working on the #swcarpentry Perl lessons :-) And I'm taking their instructor training course
18:08 sivoais That's one reason why I worked more on IPerl recently and improved its graphics functionality
18:08 pdurbin cool
