Request a workshop

Join an existing workshop

Requesting a workshop is so 2019, isn't it? At least for us it is. As of 2022, most of our workshops are online. This isn't just because of Covid-19 still, but we have found that online innovations such as co-teaching, HackMD, livestreaming, and more contributors allows us to deliver a better quality program (and that's even before we get to the broader audience). Various institutions run in-person breakout rooms and exercise sessions for the courses, too.

So, our most common recommendation for the classic 6-day CodeRefinery workshops is to join one of the online courses with your own registration and local breakout rooms (in-person or online). The most important part of our current model is teams with exercise leaders, and this model allows anyone to join as long as they can find these local leaders.

Private workshops requests

If you would like to request a private workshop, please get in touch. As of 2022, with our updated funding situation, CodeRefinery is more of a decentralized organization and we don't have dedicated staff to offer workshops (note: before 2022 this was mainly in the Nordic countries). Thus,

During this transition period, it's best to join the CodeRefniery chat and discuss there - we are re-inventing as we speak. It's good to ask if you are interested, even if we can't do it yet - this shows demand and helps with future funding!

Since CodeRefinery still has Nordic roots, that is our main audience. Workshops have been requested by both organizations and individual research groups. Price might be free (e.g. a staff member at a national computing center can provide the workshop) or some other CodeRefinery partner might be able to name a price.

Other workshops

CodeRefinery is now more than one workshop curriculum, but a platform for sharing a wide variety of workshops. These are more ad-hoc based on interest from partners. Many of them can be joined as described in the first section of this page.

These workshops have ranged as broadly as "HPC Kickstart" to "Python for Scientific Computing".
