If you will be in Boulder next week, please consider joining the February meeting of the Boulder Earth and Space Science Informatics Group (BESSIG) next Monday. Soren Scott of the Ronin Institute will lead a brainstorming session on "Evaluating the Readiness of Scientific Software, Starting in the BESSIG Community". This effort dovetails with the ESIP AIST TRL Evaluation project, which aims to determine independent criteria for evaluating the technical readiness of a project, including its software. Possible discussion topics include:
* What are basic software practices that every project should use? What additional practices are applicable to higher readiness or maturity levels?
* Is software maturity the same as software readiness? What would a good science/research code linter look like? (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8503559/what-is-linting.) How do these practices align with generally accepted good code practices? How do you measure progress?
* What matters to you in software evaluation and what kind feedback from such a process would help you?
