This was the first workshop of a New series of computational skills workshops. This workshop series is jointly organized by The Netherlands eScience Center and SURF. Through these workshops, the eScience center and SURF inform and inspire researchers about the use of best practices in scientific software development as well as efficient use of cutting-edge computing systems.

This workshop provided an introduction to the development of open source software, giving some basics to start your project and work on it using high-performance computing support in the cloud.
