Working weeks/workshops

A working week is arranged to compensate for the fact that we are a consortium of many participants, and not a physical co-located centre.

The purpose is to obtain a quantum leap forward in the development of new features, or in improving existing systems.

We should focus on working on tasks that will benefit from sitting together and work, and being able to ask questions immediately to key persons. We do not expect to solve all problems, but one should be well prepared to benefit from working together over a few days on some common tasks.

A copy of the content of the old website about the HIRLAM workshops is accessible until it is completely migrated to the this website.
