What we're about

The Tech Talks are a monthly community gathering to showcase and discuss the technical side of Australia's research infrastructure.

The Monthly Tech Talk is an initiative of ARDC (formerly ANDS, Nectar and RDS) and RDS nodes - QCIF, Intersect, NCI, VicNode, TPAC, eRSA and Pawsey. The purpose for these combined virtual Australia-wide meetings combined with local physical meetups is to: (1) provide a forum for developers to discuss topics of interest to them; (2) enable a dialogue between developers and NCRIS facilities.

Presentation slides are available from this page (https://www.meetup.com/monthlytechtalk/about/).

Natalie Myers, eRsch Librarian at University of Notre Dame (Special Guest) RSE's Intro to software curation, credit and retention - inc. special concerns of female researchers who code 2.
