This workshop aims to teach researchers step by step how existing source code can be ready for publication.


This workshop will cover the the following topics:

  • Code repository structuring
  • Minimum coding practices
  • Documentation
  • Open source licensing
  • Minimum software release practices
  • Software citation

You learn to apply the presented strategies using either the example code or your own.


  • Basic Git skills are required. A good and quick tutorial can be found in the Software Carpentry’s Git Novice episodes 1 to 9.
  • Participants require a computer equipped with a modern Web browser and their specific environment (e.g., Git client, editor) for working on their scripts. We will provide more detailed setup information before the workshop.

Registration will open 2-3 weeks before the event. We are looking forward to seeing you!
