Jonas Hagenberg (MPI Psychiatrie)


At the Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry (MPIP) people with different programming skills, from wet-lab scientists to bioinformaticians, work together. Also, quite a lot of PhD students who haven't received a formal education in computer
science perform primarily computational work. After more than a one and half year break, we revived the Code Club at the MPIP with monthly meetings. There we hold tutorials about programming topics, discuss problems encountered in the last month and find partners for code review. Our main goal is to increase the quality of the research software and scripts developed and used for our research at the MPIP. In the talk, I will give an overview about our motivation and the implementation of the Code Club.
