DeveloperWeek 2017 is the world’s largest developer expo and conference series with over 50 week-long events and dozens of city-wide partner events. The theme this year is, ‘The Industrial Revolution of Code’ – examining the ways in which code is revolutionizing the way we conduct business and ourselves.
To celebrate #DevWeek17, Digital Science – Overleaf's lead investor – are conducting a series of interviews of those involved in the development of new tools and innovations in the research space. Delighted to help kick things off, our very own Dr John Lees-Miller is up first! Here's his first answer; check out the original interview for the full set, including John's advice for those looking to break into the competitive world of software development.

Researchers have to monitor their research field to stay up to date. Being aware of their co-writers and competitors’ work, following any progress, new knowledge and methods is both fundamental and essential in the researcher’s job.
Peerus is a webapp. It is a smart, self-learning tool allowing researchers to speed up and automate their monitoring. Dedicated to researchers, Peerus immediately identifies each user’s past publications and co-authors.

After a great turnout at our last #FuturePub in May, and given that the London ALPSP conference is coming up soon, we're teaming up with Scholarly Social for a pre-ALPSP event on September 13th!
The evenings are designed to be fun and informal - we aim to give opportunities to those working on new ideas and innovations a chance to present and get feedback on their ideas. And did I mention the free pizza?
FuturePub is being held at The Stables (near Kings Cross). Doors open at 6:00pm and the talks will kick off at 7pm. Space at the venue is limited, so please register for your free tickets now to reserve your place!
