The IDEAS Productivity project, in partnership with the DOE Computing Facilities of the ALCF, OLCF, and NERSC and the DOE Exascale Computing Project (ECP) has resumed the webinar series on Best Practices for HPC Software Developers, which we began in 2016. As part of this series, we offer one-hour webinars on topics in scientific software development and high-performance computing, approximately once a month. The next webinar is titled Building Community through xSDK Software Policies, and will be presented by Ulrike Meier Yang (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory) and Piotr Luszczek (The University of Tennessee, Knoxville).
