CodeRefinery Update

Johan Hellsvik, PDC

This winter, the CodeRefinery project started up its third phase. The activity was kick-started with a large online workshop on 22-24 and 29-31 March. CodeRefinery implemented a setup whereby the teaching was provided in a format combining live streaming over Twitch (a video streaming service), plus interaction of learners and instructors via HackMD (an editor that allows people to share and collaboratively edit documents), as well as tutoring in Zoom breakout rooms. The combination of these channels enabled close to three hundred people to participate in the workshop and provided a great learning experience – both for the learners attending the workshop on their own and for the learners who were tutored in exercise groups.
