Information about a summer school about collaborative software development
UBB Digital Lab Summer School on Collaborative scientific software development
What comes next once you're comfortable with the syntax of a programming language or two, and have written some small programs for yourself? Once a project grows to a certain size, factors beyond the immediate programming task take more and more time, and the social aspects of software development become more important.
The aim of this workshop is to give an introduction to topics that go beyond the initial knowledge of reading and writing code. How do you design programs that are modular and reusable by others? How can libraries in different languages be used together? What are tools that can help in documenting and testing code? How can development and releases be managed in group projects with multiple authors and multiple users?
In a mixture of talks and many hands-on sessions we'll try to address this next step. In the second half of the workshop, you will work in small groups on designing and writing a new project from scratch, giving you direct experience of having to rely on other people’s code.
Please find more information and register on the event page.
In case of you one of you could imagine to host a group project (a project that a competent programmer could solve in 1-2 days – this can be either a cool problem that you solved before or something that you would like to try out, the project leader take a "customer role" here), please get in touch and I will provide you with more detailed information.
Collaborative project examples form an earlier Summer School:
RVS member Dag-Håkon participates in new anthology: Book launch April 7!
RVS member Dag-Håkon Eriksen - and former members Gry Espedal and Stephen Sirris - stand behind a new book on "Researching Values". The book is published on Springer and is open access.
There is a book launch on April 7th 0900 - 1030. You can find more info here.
Congratulations to Julia Kuhlin!
RVS member Julia Kuhlin successfully defended her thesis in Uppsala, February 11th this year.
The title of Julia's thesis is: "Lived Pentecostalism in India: Middle Class Women and Their Everyday Religion", and you find it here: https://www.diva-portal.org/smash/record.jsf?pid=diva2%3A1620651&dswid=-7705.
RVS: Applications for membership
The Research School RVS is no longer accepting any applications for membership.
The period with support from The Research Council of Norway is ending December 31st 2023. We are working towards a continuation of the school. If and when this is accomplished, we will open up for applications again.
