CodeRefinery workshop September 20-22 and 27-29, 2022


Why is there not just one registration page? Because we allow teams and organizations to self-organize their registration process and some organizations prefer that.

  • If you are at Jyväskylä University, please register here.
  • If you are participating via SNIC/ENCCS (Sweden), we will share a registration link with you soon.
  • Everybody else, please use this registration link.
  • If you represent an organization with their own registration form, you can manage that on your own and all we will ask you is to register the teams and their contact point with us. Later (during or after the workshop) we will ask you to give us actual participation numbers and also provide us with the affiliation contry/countries of the participants and their career stage/ job type. If it is helpful for your organization, we can also list your registration link here.

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 that has to do their own programming. The main focus is on using Git for efficiently writing and maintaining research software.


This is an informal and interactive event with type-along lessons, live coding, and exercises. Learners are divided into exercise teams for interactivity - register with a friend! If you feel a bit more confident in the material, you can register as an exercise leader.

The workshop will be held online, see options at how to join:

  • Everyone watches the main teaching via a livestream at If you register, you can get emails and link to ask questions.

  • You can also register to attend our Zoom breakout rooms (limited places), and you will be placed into a small, interactive breakout room. Please only register for Zoom if you want to actively take part in the exercises (read more).

  • Some partners offer in-person breakout rooms and help, see below.

Before signing up please also read this privacy note about tools/services we use.
