o2r Team member Daniel was invited by the university’s press office to participate in a series of interviews and articles on digitisation or “digitalisation” at the WWU Münster:
The video is now available online in German (embedded below) and with English subtitles.
You can also watch it on Facebook or in the WWU video portal.
Daniel wrote a brief summary for our blog and shares his experience:
First we talked about how digitisation is a familiar topic for computer scientists professionally (digital data, algorithms), but also something we encounter as citizens.…

This article is cross-posted in German on the senseBox blog.
It’s the time of the year to make resolutions and to see beyond one’s own nose.
For o2r team member Daniel, this meant to explore what he could do with his brand new senseBox:home and the awesome BinderHub instead of putting it on the back burner.
Building on a deep stack of Open Hardware, Free and Open Source Software, and Open Data, he created…

Our project is going into its final phase. We are working on integrating our latest experiences and discussions into the ERC specification and constantly add new features to the implementation of the reproducibility service.
We also try to keep our demo server up to date.
But what good is a reproducibility platform, when you can only try it online?
Inspired by the just passed Open Access Week (#oaweek), we’ve started a new repository
reference-implementation to expose our developments, which have been open source from the start, to the interested public.

It comprises documentation for…

This blog post presents work based on the study project Badges for computational geoscience containers at ifgi. We thank the project team for their valuable contributions!
Today badges are widely used in open source software repositories. They have a high recognition value and consequently provide an easy and efficient way to convey up-to-date metadata. Version numbers, download counts, test coverage or container image size are just a few examples. The website Shields.io provides many types of such badges. It also has an API to generate custom ones.
Now imagine similar badges, i.e. succinct, up-to-date information, not for software projects…
