Last week (6-10 Dec 2021) we had a coding week for AiiDA, in Leysin. About 10 people participated on-site and a few people participated online. Not only do had active participation by core AiiDA developers, but also by other developers who were interested in contributing to the platform. In addition, members from the Swiss supercomputing centre CSCS were present, and an outstanding presentation was contributed from Microsoft, introducing their use and extensions to the AiiDA ecosystem.

Last month we held our annual AiiDA’s introductory tutorial (from the 5th to the 9th of July 2021), an event in which the AiiDA developers teach students and researchers from the field of computational materials science how to get started with running and writing reproducible workflows with our code. This year the event lasted for 5 days and was organized in a fully virtual format, which allowed us to support over 100 participant from 30 different countries around the world!

Due to the ongoing pandemic, this year’s edition of the AiiDA tutorial was organised in an entirely virtual format, which gave us the opportunity to expand our admittance to a truly global audience. In total, we accepted 85 participants from 30 countries and 13 different time zones. Incorporating this wide range of time zones presented an interesting challenge, and so we decided to split participants into two groups, running duplicate hands-on sessions for each group at different times of the day.
