Scisprint 2021 Early July: solvcon devenv

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.


Please join on the day of sprint !!

Date & time

12th July, Monday, 2021, 19:00 -- 21:00


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 cases!

  • 19:00 -- 19:30: Opening, introduction for devenv and solvcon
  • 19:30 -- 20:30: Add more test cases!!
  • 20:30 -- 21:00: Discussion


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 Connection from a laptop or desktop is recommended. Mobile devices (iPad, iPhone, etc.) do not perform well with
