Scientific computation workflow

Keeping my workflow reproducible and fast. How do I do this?

Answer: LaTeX, scriptable pipelines, cloud wrangling (), asynchronous queues, scientific workbooks, academic writing automation, swearing at campus clusters, and datasets, which includes some open data sets sharing tips.

Background: open notebook science.

Basic steps toward reproducible research.

The Knowledge Repository is one open workflow sharing platform. Motivation:

[…]our process combines the code review of engineering with the peer review of academia, wrapped in tools to make it all go at startup speed. As in code reviews, we check for code correctness and best practices and tools. As in peer reviews, we check for methodological improvements, connections with preexisting work, and precision in expository claims. We typically don’t aim for a research post to cover every corner of investigation, but instead prefer quick iterations that are correct and transparent about their limitations.

One interesting combination might be containeraized reproducibility.
