Since 2015, members of the scientific software community have been organizing sessions in the “Birds of a Feather” (BoF) track at Supercomputing and also sometimes at the ISC High Performance conference. The title of the BoFs has changed over the years, but the primary purpose has always been to provide an opportunity for people interested in scientific software, particularly in HPC environments, to get together and share their thoughts, network, and build community. The BoFs have proven an interesting and enjoyable way to find out what’s on the minds of some folks in this community.
