Writing software has become central to research in many fields of science. This school aims to give early-career scientists an introduction to a variety of topics that help them to write efficient, clean, maintainable and long-lived code that is useful beyond solving an immediate problem. In a mixture of talks and many hands-on sessions, the focus lies on showing best practices and building fundamental skills in creating, extending and collaborating on modular and reusable software.
● Python / shell scripts as glue code
● Mixing programming languages
● Introduction to computer architectures and software optimization
● Modular, reusable software design
● Effective collaborative development with multiple co-authors
● Version control and release cycles
● Automated testing frameworks
● Structured documentation
● Systematic debugging
● Management of open source scientific packages
● Continuous integration & deployment
● Conversational development
Participants are expected to have some experience in a programming language, this course is not suitable for beginners in programming.
Grants: A limited number of grants are available to support the attendance of selected participants, with priority given to participants from developing countries.
