Physics Coding Club at the University of York is an informal group for people who write or develop research software in the Department of Physics. We meet weekly to discuss various topics around developing software, best practices, etc., including the odd hands-on session to learn new skills, or polish rusty ones.

Here are some topics we’ve covered:

  • Version control
  • Documentation
  • Tests and test driven development
  • How modern CPUs work
  • Understanding compilers
  • Efficient numerical programming with Python

Visit the forum or subscribe to our mailing list (just send a blank email) to get updates on upcoming meetings. We normally meet on Fridays at 11am, with the venue moving between different locations on campus.
