The Software Engineering Support Centre provides support to the UK
academic community, with a focus on the CCP community in particular.
It is funded by EPSRC and provided by the Software Engineering Group
within Scientific Computing at STFC.
It provides two tools to do this: The
SESC Build Service for software
testing and CCPForge for software development management.
It aims to:
Provide a continuous integration/software testing service to enable
high quality software to be written by the UK academic community;
Be responsive to and knowledgeable about our user community, supporting
them to improve software engineering practices by providing practical support;
Support software as a long-lived research output through investigation
of services in the curation, citation and impact areas integrated into
continuous integration services;
Be an integral part of a wider community, including links with SSI and EPCC.
