Jupyter sprintBy Raniere Silva, Community Officer, Software Sustainability Institute

On 16-20th January, the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences hosted the Computational Mathematics with Jupyter workshop organised jointly by the OpenDreamKit and CoDiMa projects where GAP, Singular, SageMath, Jupyter users and developers met for experience sharing talks and coding hackathons.

In a previous blog post, we covered the talks during the Computational Mathematics with Jupyter workshop and in this post we will mention some of the achievements of the workshop attendees during the sprint. If you do a search on Wikipedia, "a sprint is a get-together of people involved in a project to further a focused development of the project", but at this sprint attendees worked on more than one project. Some people are sceptical about the value of sprints, but we hope that the Jupyter sprint helped…

From the 16th to the 20th January, the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences  hosted the Computational Mathematics with Jupyter Workshop organised jointly by the OpenDreamKit and CoDiMa projects where GAP, Singular, SageMath, Jupyter users and developers met for experience sharing talks and coding hackathons.

The workshop kickstarted with Mike Croucher asking the provocative question "is your research software correct?" Mike covered the reproducibility crises that, in his own words, can be partially solved with:

  • Automation (aka learn to program)

  • Writing code in a (very) high-level language

  • Getting some training

  • Using version control

Alexander Konovalov, Software Sustainability Institute fellow, helped organise and deliver the Second CoDiMa training school in Discrete Computational Mathematics, from 17th to 21st October 2016 in Edinburgh. Hosted at the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences, 26 learners representing 11 institutions from around the UK attended the event. The majority of attendees were PhD students in mathematics and computer science. The training was delivered by Christopher Jefferson, Alexander Konovalov , Steve Linton, Markus Pfeiffer and Wilf Wilson.
