Software containers using Docker / Singularity are a core part of modern data science, found at the heart of Nextflow pipelines. On today's show, we bring on the creator of Nextflow – Paolo Di Tommaso – to tell us the good, the bad and the ugly of containers.
In this episode of the Channels podcast, it’s all about developer experience! 👩🏻💻🎉
Ben Sherman takes Phil Ewels through new and upcoming language improvements in the Nextflow language which will help people writing Nextflow pipelines write code faster, with fewer errors, and of course with beautifully formatted indentation 🤩
In this News and Views episode, Phil Ewels, Chris Hakkaart and Marcel Ribeiro-Dantas play with interactive debuggers in IntelliJ to try to understand what's happening in their pipeline. We also give a first look at plans for a brand new "Nextflow Ambassador" program that we'll be launching soon, as well as a revamped training course that was rescued from the precipice.
