Research suggests that computational scientists spend up to 30% of their work week writing code. 90% of computational scientists are self-trained. This means that many best-practices for code development and maintenance are often not formally articulated or trained. This talk presents a high-level overview of best practices in code management. Interested readers should check out the following papers:
- Wilson et al., 2014: Best Practices for Scientific Computing
- Wilson et al., 2017: Good enough practices in scientific computing
