Fortran Modernisation Workshop - Southampton and STFC UK‏‏

Hello all,


I will be running a two day computational science-centric practical hands on 
workshop is aimed  at Fortran programmers who want to write modern and efficient 
code, or modernise existing codes, to make it more readable and maintainable by 
encouraging good software engineering practices. The workshop will cover tools and 
libraries that  are commonly used in computational science and engineering.


Topics will include:  

·         Software engineering for computational science;
·         Modern Fortran standards and how to write optimized and efficient Fortran;
·         NetCDF and HDF5 scientific file formats for data sharing in Fortran;
·         GNU Automake to automate the build process;
·         pFUnit unit testing framework for testing Fortran codes;
·         Doxygen for Fortran code documentation;
·         Git version control for collaborative code development;
·         In-situ visualisation using PLplot in Fortran;
·         IEEE Floating Point Exception Handling
·         Software verification and portability using the NAG Fortran Compiler
·         Fortran interoperability with C, Python and R;
·         Introduction to parallelism for Fortran.
