A course on how to develop software

Post by ted »

Software Carpentry

This site has tutorial materials (lecture notes and exercises) from a course on basic software development practices, designed for scientists and engineers. Well worth a look, even if you don't do any of the exercises, let alone follow all of the recommendations that you'll find here. For example, you might prefer different version control software--rcs or mercurial, for example. An added bonus: the tutorial also contains an introduction to python.

If we had a "rating system," I'd give this one 5 stars.

Thanks for the tip, Raj!
