Meta Discussion

Asking good Research Computing questions This section is about helping all of us help each other to ask high quality questions generally, but also specifically in the context of Research Computing itself— without experience in this space, it may not be obvious how to ask a “good, high quality question”, especially for people new to research computing. Our Q&A site is not intended to replace training materials that teach people about research computing, rather we want to quickly enable people to ask specific questions with enough relevant context to help them quickly reach the answers they seek.
