NeXus Code Camp - October 2020

The 2020 NeXus Code Camp is scheduled for 2 days in October 2020: October 17 (Saturday) - 18 (Sunday). It is taking place immediately after the NOBUGS 2020 conference which is hosted by the European XFEL


The Saturday 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 Sunday 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 Saturday 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 Sunday 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 only necessary if you are attending in person and is done as part of the NOBUGS 2020 conference registration.


The code camp will cost 20 EUR/person/day, which covers coffee breaks and lunch costs.
