Teaching Workshop

CodeRefinery workshop March 21-23 and 28-30, 2023

Free workshop on git, testing, documentation, and more – targeted towards researchers and scientists.

Course goals

In this course, you will become familiar with tools and best practices for scientific software development. This course will not teach a programming language, but we teach the tools you need to do programming well and avoid common inefficiency traps. The tools we teach are practically a requirement for any scientist who needs to write code. The main focus is on using Git for efficiently writing and maintaining research software.


Do you identify with any of these below, then this course is for you:

  • You write scripts to process data.
  • You change scripts written by your colleagues.
  • You write code that is used in research by you or others.
  • You wish you could re-run your own code after a few months.
  • You wish you could reproduce your own results better.
  • You wish you could automate your work better.
  • You, or your group, can’t share or reuse code.
  • You overall want to become more efficient at your work, by using the best possible tools.


The workshop will be held on March 21-23 and 28-30, 2023
