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
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.
Please join gather.town
on the day of sprint !!

A system needs to be well tested before it is reliable and easy to maintain.
In this sprint we will improve the reliability of devenv by adding more test
You will need a laptop or VM running either MacOS or Linux. At the moment the
project does not yet support Windows.
We hold the sprint on the gather.town. Connection from a laptop or desktop is
recommended. Mobile devices (iPad, iPhone, etc.) do not perform well with
