Hello All,

Please join SIAM next Monday for free lunch and a workshop on basic
software engineering skills, presented by Applied Math Ph.D. candidate
William Schwartz.  The talk will cover general practices applicable to any
programming language, and should be particularly valuable to students
enrolled in courses with a programming requirement.  See our HawkLink
announcement below for details.  We hope to see you there!

> *Introduction to Software Engineering for Scientific Programmers**Where*:
> RE 103
> *When*: 12:45 to 1:45 on Monday, February 6.
> Eat free food and learn the basics of professional software engineering
> for scientific programmers. This introductory talk will familiarize you
> with source-code version control through Git, quality assurance through
> testing, and documentation by applying it to a typical MATLAB assignment
> from Math 477/577. The focus will be on the engineering surrounding the
> code rather than the code itself. If time allows, we will also see how to
> use Git and GitHub to collaborate on coding projects. Open to all
> undergraduate and graduate students, the talk will be helpful to those
> applying to jobs involving any code and to those starting research projects
> requiring programming. The only prerequisite is some experience programming
> in any language.
