What makes code accessible and reproducible, and what the GitHub hype is all about

More and more publishers are starting to require publishing of code and software alongside scientific papers and data. Unlike for data, standards for publishing code are lagging somewhat behind though. In this seminar we’ll talk about why publishing neat code matters, how to make your code both accessible and reproducible, and why you should probably start using Git more, too.


  • Why bother with neat code? (Publishing requirements, re-use by others, tidiness in your own workspace)
  • What makes code accessible?
  • What makes code reproducible?
  • What the “GitHub hype” is all about
