Let’s face it: we learn more from each other than from classes. How can we learn from each other if we don’t have a community? Join the Aalto SciComp community to make the most of your time here.
Aalto Scientific Computing hosts many different channels to get involved. Through it, you can:
- Network with others.
- Share knowledge among ourselves (maybe have relevant training, too). We can’t be experts in everything, so if users can help each other, everyone benefits.
- Take part in developing our services - basically, be a voice of the users.
- More directly help the community by, for example, directly updating this site, helping to develop services, or teaching with us.
SciComp Garage and issues¶
Currently, most of our interaction happens in the daily SciComp Garage, which is a daily meeting where we help others (and learn ourselves). If you hang out there, you will learn a lot.
If you subscribe to the Triton issue tracker, you will see a lot of questions and answers, and thus learn a lot.
Aalto community chats¶
We have weekly chats for the Aalto scientific computing poweruser/RSEs as a way to network with the community and Aalto staff. Currently, these are done at 10:00 on Thursdays as part of the Nordic-RSE Finland chats. Anyone is welcome to join and discuss Aalto-related topics.
- If you have a Triton account, you are on the triton-users mailing list already. Many training and other events are announced there.
- If you do not have a Triton account, the scicomp-announcements mailing list provides the same information. Subscribe here.
- Join our Research Software Engineer mailing list for information on research software related topics and the RSE community at Aalto.
- Join the Aalto Scientific Computing group on Aalto Microsoft Teams. The invite code is
e50tyij. In practice, we watch it for questions but it’s not the most active place (but it could be).
- We often hang out on the CodeRefinery chat, and there is an
