Abstract
UKIRT and JCMT, two highly heterogeneous telescopes, have been embarking on several joint software projects covering all areas of observatory operations such as observation preparation and scheduling, telescope control and data reduction. In this paper we briefly explain the processes by which we have arrived at such a large body of shared code and discuss our experience with developing telescope-portable software and code re-use.
