The FAIR Principles mandate that all digital research objects should be findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable. Initially mainly perceived and applied for data, they are becoming increasingly important also for research software. We will discuss why and how FAIR principles for software differ from those for data, how software FAIRness can be assessed and measured, and what everybody can do to make their software FAIR(er). Finally, we survey community initiatives working towards the development and standardization of FAIR principles for research software, and ways to get involved.
