- Do you write any code?
- Have you ever come back to your code from 6 months ago and had no idea why it doesn’t work any more (or what it even does)??
- Does your code mysteriously stop working overnight even though you’re sure you didn’t change anything?
- Do you ever wish you could get back your lovely code from last week that worked just fine before you changed it?
- Do you use (or will you use) any kind of software in your research at all?
If you answer yes to any of the above then this workshop is for you!* We are holding a free day long workshop at UCL on September 18th on polar software which will cover everything from version control and writing better code to specific software used in polar research. We have a range of brilliant speakers from academia, as well as some who have taken the software skills they have learnt from academia into industry.
Apply here now! Limited help with travel costs are available. Registration is free, deadline is August 31st. If you’re not already convinced (and you really should be) there’s free lunch too 🙂
This workshop is for all early career polar researchers no matter your level of experience, masters, PhD and beyond and has been partially funded by the Software Sustainability Institute.
We also encourage participants to stay for our polar sciences hack day on September 19th– we will be joining with students from other disciplines (e.g. physics, computer sciences) to come along and work on some polar problems for a day so even if you don’t think you’re great at coding here is your chance to get some help from those who are, and put into practice the skills you learn during the workshop.
