A New Sponsor – and a New Developer Challenge Prize!

We are delighted to announce that the Software Sustainability Institute is our newest sponsor to come on board for Repository Fringe 2013!

Software Sustainability logoThe Software Sustainability Institute works with researchers to identify and shape the software considered to be important to research. The Institute provides a range of free and paid-for services which ensure that software is maintained, made available to a wider user base and its potential for sustainability is maximised.

In keeping with their mission to support the preservation of research software the Software Sustainability Institute have sponsored a new Developers Challenge prize for the Best Hack for Storing Software in a Digital Repository.

So, get those thinking hats on, and conjur up some brilliant ideas and hacks around these less traditional but very important repository items. Already got a great idea? Head on over to our Developers Challenge page to find out more about how to take part, and the other prizes on offer this year!

We would also like to thank the Software Sustainability Institute for supporting Repository Fringe 2013 by sponsoring the travel costs of our closing keynote speaker, Mark Hahnel of FigShare.

To find out more about all of the fantastic organisations supporting Repository Fringe this year please head to our Sponsors page and take a look around.
