Oral Contribution (O3.11) Jessica Mink (Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory)Theme: Evolution of software development and management
Lessons Learned From Developing and Maintaining Shared Astronomical Software PackagesSoftware which performs specific useful tasks for astronomers can have a very long life. If the user interface is simple enough and the code is portable, the use can spread quite widely, and if the API's for the included self-contained subroutine library are straightforward, it will be included in other packages and demands on the developer grow. How can one person keep software useful and citable for 30 years, and where does it go from there?
Birds of a Feather Discussion (B2) Jessica Mink (Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory)
Data Formats BoFWhere once we only discussed FITS, presentations on the current status of other data formats being developed for new instruments, such as ASDF, will be presented. Proposed changes to the FITS standard, such as long keywords, which can make it more supportive of interactivity with new formats will be discussed, as will standards to be shared between new formats, continuing discussions begun last year.
