The RSE-ops Landscape

Research Software Engineering is becoming increasingly more complex in terms of technology and the need for communication between teams needing to work in both high performance computing (HPC) and cloud computing environments. This challenge would be well addressed by a movement to identify categories of functional need in this space, and best practices and tools used for each. In this paper we introduce "RSE-ops," or Research Software Engineering Operations, a movement to mirror DevOps [1], best practices to bridge development and operations in typically cloud communities, and provide structure for better collaboration and navigation of the space.

This Rse-ops Landscape is an effort to put structure around a set of research software engineering, HPC, and scientific software community needs to better work together, understand gaps in the space, and have a little fun! To get started:
