Scicomp garage

The Aalto Scicomp Garage is a help session for scientific computing at Aalto organized by the Science-IT team (Triton admins). It’s the best time to talk to the people behind scientific computing at Aalto. This is a place to get stuff done, so bring your laptop and coffee/food, and come hang out.

Most of the time, we are just there to answer questions.

Sometimes, there may be a short presentation on some topic, but you can still ask questions to the other staff before, during, and after that.

Come if you want to:

  • Solve problems
  • Discuss bigger problems
  • Network with others who are doing similar work
  • Learn something new
  • Give feedback


  • Days: Triton garage is every week from 14:00-15:00 on Thursdays.
  • Time: We promise to be there only the first 30 minutes, so if everyone leaves before then we might leave too (usually we are there the whole time).
  • Location: See below. Common locations: T4 and A106 (CS building, by entrance around back of T2), A237 (CS building, by main coffee room on 2nd floor A wing) and B121 (CS building).
