How to Scale a Code in the Human Dimension [article]

Matthew J. Turk
2013 arXiv   pre-print
We present techniques that have been successful in growing and engaging communities of practice, specifically in the yt and Enzo communities.  ...  In many cases, these needs are being met by communities of practice, where software is developed by domain scientists to reach pragmatic goals and satisfy distinct and enumerable scientific goals.  ...  In addition, I would like to thank Britton Smith and Greg Bryan both for extremely valuable feedback in preparing this paper and for leading by example in community development for scientific codes.  ...
