Introduction to Open Source Software (OSS) management and workflow as an emerging but critical component of Open Science. The role of software sharing and sustainability in reproducibility, trust and longevity. Different perspectives around the sharing and reuse of computational code and methods, namely the software producer, the software reuser, and the non-coder with an interest either in reproducing research findings or in following experimental processes. Useful resources and tools for sharing and exposing code and workflows. 

  • roles that open source software and open workflows play in supporting Open Science
  • how Open Science can support reproducibility
  • different stakeholders' needs when it comes to software and workflows
  • useful tools and resources to help you get started with using OSS and open workflows
