Have you recently started writing your own code? Is your code related to research or a research project in any way? Would you like to get critical but kind feedback on your code? Could do with a second pair of eyes to track down a bug? Come to our Code Review Clinic!

The Code Review Clinic will run on week 2 (8-12 November 2021) of the Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet. There will be one session in the morning and one in the afternoon (both GMT) from Monday to Friday. Our aim is to allow first time/beginner coders to get general but targeted feedback on their code from an expert. 

Apply to the Code Review Clinic

Applications will close on Wednesday 27 October or once all slots have been allocated. In the application form, you'll be asked to describe the code and project (if available) you want to submit for review. 

We welcome applications from first time / beginner coders mostly, but we're accepting applications from other levels of expertise too. This is meant to be a welcoming space for beginner coders, and, as such, we welcome code at any stage of its development.

The selection process will be based on the availability of our volunteer reviewers and will be carried out on a first come, first serve basis. That is, if we only have one volunteer reviewer with expertise on C++, then we’ll select the first suitable C++ code submission.

 Please note that we have a limit of 20 slots, 10 in the morning, and 10 in the afternoon.

Visit the Code Review Clinic page for further information.

For enquiries about applying, please contact Selina Aragon, SSI Comms Lead.

About the Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet

Our autumn Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet will run for two weeks from 1st to 12th November 2021. We will focus on the uses of spreadsheets in research and the next steps into further use of software in research. Our events and resources will collate different perspectives, experiences, and best practice of the use of spreadsheets, as well as signpost to existing resources. 

Note that we will open registration to sessions separately, so attendees are welcome to attend some or all of them. All sessions and resources can be accessed freely and they’re aimed at anyone who’s working in research and research software.
