NeXus Code Camp - October 2020

The 2020-2 NeXus Code Camp is scheduled for 2 days in October 2020: October 19 (Monday) - 20 (Tuesday). It is taking place one week after the 2020 NIAC meeting. It was originally planned to be immediately after the NOBUGS 2020 conference, hosted by the European XFEL, but NOBUGS has been postponed and the 2020 NIAC become an online meeting.


The Monday of the Code Camp will be primarily an open help session for people to ask detailed questions and request specific help from core NeXus developers, e.g. writing an application definition or writing a NeXus file correctly. The Tuesday will be more for the core NeXus developers to work on implementing NIAC decisions

If you have a topic you wish to discuss/cover in the Monday code camp, please add it as a comment to this GitHub issue

NeXus periodically convenes a Code Camp to develop NeXus software components through intense effort by small groups working on specific projects and tasks. It is expected that those attending the Monday Code Camp session will already have a strong foundation and understanding in aspects of the NeXus software and come ready with knowledge, tools, and ideas to make significant progress during the event.

(For more info on code camps, try searching Google for “code camp” or “codeathon”. Events such as the EPICS Codeathon would be reasonable templates for this NeXus code camp.)


Registration for the NIAC and code camp is not required.
