In a recent survey of UK research-intensive universities, 92% of researchers said they used research software and 68% said their research would be impossible without software. Yet 71% have had no formal software training, and few are ready to apply many of the things we take for granted such as testing or virtualisation. WSSSPE represents the pinnacle of what we understand to be the best practice around scientific software in our community. My talk will challenge the workshop participants to come up with ways of taking this best practice to those 92% of researchers in a way that will lead to maximum benefit to the scientific community.
