Deadline for registration: 15 days before the starting date of each training
Duration : 4 days (28 hours)

Before signing up, you may wish to report us any particular constraints  (schedules, health, unavailability…)  at the following e-mail address : training@cerfacs.fr



This training course enables the participants to reinforce their practical knowledge in coding. Usability, maintenance, testing, reviewing are the main subjects tackled. Hands-on sessions with in-house tools are organized to put the theoretical courses into practice.

Objective of the training

First hand experience on how the code we write is used, understood, maintained and recycled – or discarded-.

Learning outcomes

The participants should be able to :

Identify some code bloatings (primitive obsession, god-class, spaghetti).
Research and select an external package adapted to his needs.
Target participants
This training session is for students, engineers, physicists and computer scientists who wish to improve their coding skills and reduce time lost in the side effects of brute force coding.

Prerequisites and registration

In order to follow this course, you need to:

  • Knowledge of Unix commands.
  • Basic knowledge of Python
  • The training can take place in French or English depending on the audience, level B2 of the CEFR is required.
