About and purposes


🚧 This section is still in active development and is subject to changes 🚧


A key consideration to Seedcase is ensuring it is sustainable over the long-term by:

  1. Integrating the development of the framework and using it in multiple projects at the host institution Steno Diabetes Center Aarhus (SDCA).
  2. Build and document maintenance procedures while prototyping the minimum viable product.
  3. Incorporating fundamental open source sustainability concepts and documentation such having Contributing Guidelines and a Code of Conduct, as well as encouraging external users to contribute.
  4. Actively contributing back to other open source software that Seedcase depends on or that might be used alongside.

Training and educational development

How widely used Seedcase is or will be depends heavily on the quality of its documentation and training material. A key concept we will use throughout development of Seedcase is Documentation Driven Development, where Seedcase’s development is guided and informed from the development of its documentation. Meaning that we will place a high priority on documentation. We also be creating and running short workshops and tutorials that teach researchers how they can use Seedcase.
