(Cancelled due to COVID-19) Scisprint 2021 End of May: solvcon devenv


The event is cancelled because of the escalated COVID-19 situation in Taiwan. New schedule will be made after the health concerns are removed.

We cordially invite you to join the short sprint for the development environment for solvcon projects. solvcon is a host of projects focusing on numerically solving the governing equations of transient phenomena.

The development environment, i.e., devenv (see the github page), is also a solvcon project, but has a much broader scope that includes the infrastructure for developing code for numerical calculations, which are the foundation of computational sciences and mathematics. The real-world applications, including physics, mechanics, semiconductor, finance, machine learning, etc., will be built with it.

Numerical calculations require writing high-performance code. The complex implementations call for tremendous amount of code to be written and it is not possible to do it all by a single team. External dependencies are necessary. However, because of the requirements of accuracy and performance, the dependencies are usually at the source level. Building dependencies from source is the norm. The project devenv is made to help the source-level dependency management and alignment for the runtime among developers.
