Coding best practice in scientific computing

ADCS ran a workshop at UNSW for 40 participants on the topic of coding best practice in scientific computing. The workshop was aimed at researchers without formal coding/software development training (which is pretty much all researchers!). The workshop was delivered in a hybrid mode with most people attending in person, but with a strong contingent of online folks.

The three day workshop was designed to give people a taste of many different aspects of best practices in scientific computing, with topics ranging from version control, testing, and documentation, to the use of containers, HPC, how to parallelize code, as well as how to benchmark and profile code.
