URSSI Winter School

Announcing a URSSI Winter School in Research Software Engineering

December 17-19, 2019 • Seattle, WA

As part of the URSSI institute planning, we are planning a pilot 2.5-day workshop on research software engineering skills. This is aimed at early-career researchers, including graduate students and postdocs, who are familiar with the basics such as the Unix shell, version control with Git, and Python programming, and would like to learn more about best-practices for developing research software. The school concluded in December 2019. Read the summary
