Your future career in scientific computing¶
This course is the starting point. What comes next?
Don’t go alone¶
There is too much for anyone to learn directly
Form networks with your colleagues, help and learn from each other.
Academic courses teach you theory, but usually are not teaching complexities of applying it in practice.

Ask us any question about Triton or scientific computing.
AaltoSciComp chat: https://scicomp.aalto.fi/help/chat/
Chat is not good for long questions; we may direct you to the issue tracker.
But it is great for “does anyone else have this problem”
Please help each other
In the future, we want to form user groups
We have very little time to organize this, if someone else helps, that would be great.
There are lots of other courses to take.
Intensive workshop in tools you need to do scientific computing.
Version control (git), testing, modular code, etc.
Not about programming, but what you need to do programming/scripting/data analysis well.
Research software hour: https://researchsoftwarehour.github.io
“Web show” on assorted topics related to scientific computing
Informal and unplanned
Hands-on Scientific Computing: https://hands-on.coderefinery.org
Online course (more like a roadmap) of the most important untaught skills.
Get one or two credits.
