Great talk from a former colleague
 
This is a talk I gave recently about how to survive in technical jobs. It's mostly aimed at women but a bunch of men have told me it was useful for them too.

The speaker notes have most of the content.

Ten Things That Will Try To Make You Leave Technical JobsTen Things That Will Try To Make You Leave Technical Jobs And practical advice for fighting them. Talk originally written for NYU/Columbia Women in Computing symposium, 2015-04-17. These slides are not very useful on their own. Read the speaker notes. ⬇

Bonus content to my talk at 14:15 today at the University of Oslo:

How the Open Science Workstyle and Yoga are alike

Rule #1: Breathe.

We practice both of them => by acknowledging and accepting where we are today we can greet the work we do with gratitude.

Neither of them are a goal themselves, nor any other sort of destination.

Both of them will benefit you in ways you didn't expect and may not understand until later.

---

Any others?

Position available for Bioinformatics Software Developer
Our laboratory at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital is developing software for analysis of Next-Generation Sequencing data for use in bioinformatics/ epigenomics/ transcriptomics research. 
We are looking for a software developer who has experience or interest in full stack web software development with a focus on designing, developing and maintaining production software systems in data-intensive settings, aimed primarily at scientific applications. The developer must be able to adapt to changing specifications and priorities, be willing to take initiative and ownership of their work, and learn.
The ideal candidate should have experience in majority of the following areas: 
• Working on server-side components (including clusters and/or clouds) or client-side (web UI) components,
• Modern software engineering practices such as automated testing and continuous integration/deployment. 
• Server side JavaScript (e.g. Node.JS) and modern JavaScript UI frameworks such as AngularJS or ExtJS
• SQL or NoSQL databases (e.g. MongoDB)
• REST API design and implementation 
• Bioinformatics
The successful candidate will be working on enhancement of existing software (see http://biowardrobe.com) under a guidance of an experienced developer. 
Opportunities for Master’s or PhD thesis research are available.
For additional information, please contact Artem Barski barskilab@cchmc.org

I don't disagree. Gitter & GitHub do have the advantage of lowering the barrier to participation. And here we are discussing this on another proprietary platform :-P

Our new community paper about the awesome BioJS community and there involvement in Galaxy.

Installing BioJS components in Galaxy is as simple as it can get!

A lot of people are interested; there are four projects listed on their main site that use BioJS; I know of several projects looking to adopt BioJS. Their choice to adopt Polymer Web Components is also key; who want's to write new JS when you can re-use!

Do you think diversity in open source is important? Would you like to be part of changing the culture of open source to be more welcoming to women, newcomers, and marginalized people? You can help by attending the Ally Skills Workshop at the PyCon 2015 on Sunday April 12th, 2015 from 2pm until 5pm at the PyCon 2015 venue in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

This workshop is provided free of charge to PyCon attendees.

The Ally Skills Workshop teaches men how to support women in their workplaces and communities, by effectively speaking up when they see sexism, creating discussions that allow more voices to be heard, and learning how to prevent sexism and unwelcoming behavior in the first place. The changes that reduce sexism also make communities more welcoming, productive, and creative.

Attendance at the Ally Skills Workshop is free but limited, with applications open to all registered PyCon attendees. Apply now to have the best chance to attend by filling out this Google form (or just scroll down to the form at the end of this post). We welcome participants of all genders – the best workshops have at least 20% women and genderqueer folks. You will be notified via email if we cannot fit you into the workshop. Sign up now!
