A few months ago, I informally presented an earlier version of this talk at the Netherlands eScience Center (NLeSC). Two remarkable things happened after that:
- Now I am an eScience Engineer at NLeSC.
- They invited me to give the talk again. This time in a less informal setting: the National eScience Symposium, and in a less informal venue: the Ajax stadium
How software development shaped the way I write science
When we say that scientific papers are complex, we tend to think that their contents are complex. While this is true, there is much more: a paper itself is a complex form of communication. In this short talk I'll explain how my years in the industry of software development dramatically changed the way I write scientific publications.
