Track and control your code with version control systems

Software codes are constantly evolving, become more complex as newer versions are released. But sometimes errors and bugs occur and being able to retrieve the latest stable version of your software code can be a life-saver. For this, most software code repositories are equipped with version control systems (VCS). Why do you need version control and how is it implemented? Software developers working in teams are continually writing new source code and changing existing source code. The code for a project is typically organized in a folder structure or “file tree”. One developer on the team may be working on a new feature while another developer fixes an unrelated bug by changing code, each developer may make their changes in …

How to make a software more robust

Scientific quality and reproducibility rely on the traceability of the experimental data, statistical methods and bioinformatics tools used to generate results. Being unable to replicate and validate scientific results is unfortunately very common. This reproducibility crisis as named by Monya Baker considerably slows down the research progress and affects all of the fields including chemistry, biology and medicine.   Best practices are crucially needed today to improve reproducibility of data analysis and hence to make software robust enough to be run by any user.   Indeed, most of the software tools used to produce scientific results and publications are prototypes and lack robustness. Usually designed and run by a single person in a specific computing environment, codes may be very …
