CodeRefinery Workshop, hosted by Lunarc, 15-17 May 2018

CodeRefinery teaches students and researchers how to write better code and provide research groups with software development e-infrastructure tools to collaboratively develop, review, discuss, test, and share their codes. The workshop address all academic disciplines and tries to be as programming language-independent as possible.

The aim of the workshop is to demonstrate to and familiarize the participants with best practices and tools in modern research software development. The main focus is on professional tools for the efficient development and maintenance of 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 single developer projects.

CodeRefinery is a project within the Nordic e-Infrastructure Collaboration (NeIC) in which SNIC is a partner. The teaching language will be English


The workshop address students and researchers who already write code. For the hand-on practicals participants should bring a laptop, with either of OSX, Linux or Windows as an operating system (not a tablet, Chromebook, etc.).   Participants need be able to install software on their laptop. The laptop should be able to access the internet via eduroam (needs to be arranged in your home institution prior to the event).


Jyry Suvilehto, Radovan Bast, Sabry Razick and Thor Wikfeldt will be the instructors on the course.
