How to Scale a Code in the Human Dimension [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
As scientists' needs for computational techniques and tools grow, they cease to be supportable by software developed in isolation. In many cases, these needs are being met by communities of practice, where software is developed by domain scientists to reach pragmatic goals and satisfy distinct and enumerable scientific goals. We present techniques that have been successful in growing and engaging communities of practice, specifically in the yt and Enzo communities.
