Information about a summer school about collaborative software development
UBB Digital LabSummer 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:
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.
Congratulations to Julia Kuhlin!
RVS member Julia Kuhlin successfully defended her thesis in Uppsala, February 11th this year.
On Wednesday 16 June - Tone Lindheim will defend her doctoral dissertation: Opening and closing doors – Managing at the multicultural workplace. A case study of cultural diversity and inclusion in nursing homes.
