a supercomputing “driver’s license”

A smart approach from the folks at Software Carpentry and the Software Sustainability Institute – a means of assessing need before throwing resources at willing subjects. After witnessing first-hand through the discussions at the e-Infrastructure Leadership Council (I sit on the council as an industry representative), I cannot stress enough the importance of actually assessing a community’s level of awareness, skill and need before tossing them head first into serious hardware usage. A smart approach I hope gets extended beyond DiRAC.
