The key objective of CodeRefinery is to grow researchers' software best practices skills to facilitate open and reproducible research. We offer training opportunities to researchers from Nordic research groups and projects to learn basic-to-advanced research computing skills and become confident in using state-of-the-art tools and practices from modern collaborative software engineering. Since september 2018, NeIC is a Platinum Partner to The Carpentries, an international successful project that comprises Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry, communities of Instructors, Trainers, Maintainers, helpers, and supporters who share a mission to teach foundational computational and data science skills to researchers. Our training offering has been extended and we offer:
Our workshops are attended by MSc and PhD students, postdocs, researchers and more senior staff from a wide range of scientific backgrounds and with different programming experiences. Our code repository hosting and continuous integration service is open and free for all researchers based in Nordic universities and research institutes.
Carpentries workshops focus on creating a motivating and engaging environment for learners with no or little digital skills while our three day workshops are the next step. For CodeRefinery workshop, it is assumed that participants already write code for their research but no expertise is required. Some experience in navigating the file tree and editing files in a terminal session is recommended. For beginners who don't yet write code but want to get started, we highly recommend attending a Software Carpentry workshop.
