Contents:

Scientific research increasingly relies on software. Software engineering and development play a key role in the production of software. Thus, formal education and training in software development methodologies become more important, particularly in larger software projects. Software development in teams needs formalized processes to get a reliable outcome. The aim of this course is to give an introduction to established software development methodologies and best practices. The lessons learned in this workshop can be applied to large projects but will also help individual researchers to improve the quality of their software.

Topics covered are:

  • Overview of software development methodologies
  • Scrum and agile practices
  • Version control: hands-on training, working with Git and GitHub
  • Open source and community building
  • Licenses and copyright
  • Software testing and quality
  • Documentation

The course is given in English.

Experience in programming is highly recommended.

JSC Events - Measures Regarding the Coronavirus Pandemic

Due to the preventive measures at Forschungszentrum Jülich regarding the spread of the Coronavirus, JSC courses were cancelled or postponed. For the time being and with the rapidly changing situation in mind, JSC cannot foresee whether courses and events in the next months can take place as scheduled as face-2-face events. Seminars will preferably be streamed as video conferences, courses might be postponed or partly given as webinars. We still take registrations for the upcoming courses. All participants who registered for courses so far will be notified by e-mail after the regular registration deadline whether and how the courses will be held.

Please check regularly with the webpage https://fz-juelich.de/ias/jsc/events whether upcoming events will take place at all or be streamed.
