Open source research software – my (reused) “two” cents

Some while back I wrote two pieces on open source research software for the Software Sustainability Institute‘s Blog. The man to thank here is Dr Mario Antonioletti, who is a Software Architect at EPCC, University of Edinburgh, Scotland, UK. (Checkout his EPCC blog) I was very fortunate to have him as my main contact during my HPC-Europa2-funded research visit at EPCC. Mario quickly noticed my passion for open source software and thus established the connection with the Software Sustainability Institute. As the messages in both posts are (and will be) important to me I am reusing them here again.
