The CSIRO Conference on Computational and Data Intensive Science

Tools for supporting science software development

Workshop summary

This workshop will cover the basics of how to use the Atlassian suite of tools to support software development and manage your code. These applications are all supported and maintained by IM&T and are provided free of charge to CSIRO staff. Note that this workshop is aimed at users who are not familiar or have limited experience with these tools.

Most of these tools are also free for use by CSIRO partners, allowing you to collaborate on code with external parties.
