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


Are you doing any of these things below:

  • 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.

... and if you have these kinds of problems:

  • 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.

... then this course is for you. This is not designed for "professional code developers" or computer scientists, or to make you one.

You can register with your friends/group as a team and you'll work together in breakout rooms, and you'll be able to work together after the course as well.

What we will not teach

This is not a course about a specific programming language or the Linux/Unix terminal shell. We assume that you are familiar with the programming language that you use in your work and research. Most of the course applies to any programming language, though our default language for examples is Python (but we do have examples in other languages, too).

Be an exercise leader

Do you know some of the topics, but want to review them, why not attend as an exercise leader? You don't need to be an expert: if you have been through CodeRefinery once or have some familiarity with the topics, and you are confident to call an expert helper when needed, then you have all it takes to lead a team to success.
