Description:

​Code/Astro is a week-long astronomy software development workshop motivated by the growing usage of open-source software in astronomical research. The goal of this program is to teach participants fundamental software engineering skills and best practices for building sustainable open-source packages for astronomy applications. During the workshop, participants will obtain hands-on experience with software engineering by developing a small software package from scratch. The workshop will also serve as a networking and career development opportunity. The workshop is free and open to folks at all career levels. Code/Astro is made possible thanks to support by the Heising-Simons Foundation.

Code/Astro will be hybrid and offer both in-person and virtual synchronous participation. The in-person component will be held at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. Travel funding is available to support anyone who is accepted to the workshop and needs financial assistance (exact amount will depend on demand, but we anticipate to be able to cover at least the large majority of it). Please note that if you are just looking for access to the course materials and do not want to participate synchronously during the workshop, you don’t need to apply: the course material are on Github with corresponding lectures posted on Youtube.
