Hello everyone,

Apologies for the cross-posts.

The INCF/OCNS Software Working Group (WG)[1] is happy to announce its
first set of "Dev sessions" where members of the developer teams of
commonly used neuroscience software will introduce their software and
then discuss their *development* pipelines.

The aim of these sessions is to stimulate discussion of the development
practices and tools used by different teams to improve the software we
use while also improving our knowledge of these practices and tools.
We also hope to encourage more users of these tools to contribute to
their development to ensure their longevity.

Two sessions are currently scheduled:

- Marcel Stimberg will speak about the development of the Brian
  simulator on Feb 11, 2021 1700 UTC[2]. Zoom link:

- Ankur Sinha will speak about the development of the NeuroFedora
  Linux distribution on Feb 16, 2021 1700 UTC[3]. Zoom link:

(To prevent spamming/trolling during these sessions, you will need to
login to your Zoom account to join them. These sessions will be recorded
and made available for later viewing also.)

Sessions on GeNN and Neurolib will also follow shortly.

If you develop software for neuroscience, we would love to hear about
your development pipeline. Please get in touch with the Software WG
either on INCF's Neurostars platform[4] or on our GitHub repository[5].

The WG is a community based group that is open to everyone at all levels
of their careers (academic or otherwise). Please introduce yourself to
the community on our channels to get involved.
