Course goals

The aim of this course is to demonstrate to and familiarize the workshop participants with best practices and tools in modern research software development. The main focus is on professional tools for efficiently developing and maintaining research software. Since most research code is developed in a collaborative setting, we will discuss tools and workflows which facilitate this process. Most of the content is also relevant to a single developer.

Format

Hands-on informal and interactive three-day event with type-along type of presentations, live coding and demos. Short tutorials alternate with practical exercises.

Schedule

Monday, February 20 Tuesday, February 21 Wednesday, February 22

Location

Room Fantum, Lindstedtsvägen 24, F-building, 5:th floor, KTH Campus. Map of local lunch restaurants.

Time

9:00 am to 5:00 pm

Price

Who the course is for

If you are writing code that is used in research, then this course is for you. If you develop research code and you know all the tools already, join us as a helper! It's fun, and you always learn something new about a subject by teaching it.

What we will not teach

This is not a course about a specific programming language or the Linux/Unix shell. We assume that you are familiar with the programming language that you use in your work and research. We try to keep the course as language-independent as possible but we will show some basic code examples in Python.

Prerequisites

  • You should be able to navigate the file tree in a terminal session and edit text files in the terminal.
  • Basics in at least one programming language.
  • You will need to bring a laptop.
  • It is good if you have access to Eduroam.
  • You need to install some software. Please follow our installation instructions.
