Synopsis: (limit of 400 characters) Heliophysics depends on RSEs to properly engineer software. However, RSEs receive unequal treatment compared to their science counterparts, resulting in unsustainable talent loss. These restrictions include lack of credit for their contributions and insufficient training. This paper describes what a RSE is and proposes solutions, including implementing appropriate recognition standards.
Synopsis: (limit of 400 characters) The current infrastructure in heliophysics acts as a barrier towards progress due to the lack of intelligent connections between the many valuable resources in our field. Due to the large scale of this problem, the path to a productive infrastructure requires community collaboration towards a common vision. This white paper presents a broad overview of what that vision could be and a path forward.
