As a scientific researcher, you’re spending a lot of your time wrestling with software. Chances are, you write some of it yourself.
Unfortunately, beyond the one or two introductory programming courses you had in the first years of University, you have to rely mostly on self-learning. This means you waste a lot of time on reinventing the wheel, spending hours on things that should only take minutes.
During a short and intensive course, you learn some of the most effective strategies to improve the quality of your code, saving lots of time along the way.

Niels Laurens (email) studied Physics at Leiden University, with additional courses in Computer Science. He also worked as a software developer for the University. After obtaining his PhD in Biophysics at VU University Amsterdam in 2012, he did R&D at a major Dutch multinational. Currently, he is manager of the Physics Department at VU University.
Onno Broekmans (email) combined his MSc in NanoScience with a job as senior teacher, at a specialized training course in physics for high-school students. As much as he loved teaching, he eventually wound up leading a small team of programmers in automating the course’s administration. Since then, he has become involved with single-molecule biophysics, eigenworms, and yoga.
