Make Course Announced

Have you ever thought about how you can make your results easier to reproduce?

Make is a tool which can run commands to read files, process these files in some way, and write out the processed files. For example, in software development, Make is used to compile source code into executable programs or libraries, but Make can also be used for many other tasks.

These include:

  • run analysis scripts on raw data files to get data files that summarize the raw data;
  • run visualization scripts on data files to produce plots; and to
  • parse and combine text files and plots to create papers.

The course is open to all research students and researchers at the University of Manchester and will take place on the 6th of June.
