Popper is a tool for conducting scientific explorations and writing academic articles following a DevOps approach. Popper allows researchers to automate the execution and validation of (computational and data-intensive) experimentation workflows. To learn more about Popper you can:
- Read our blog.
- Download our publications.
- Email us, chat or open an issue.
- Read the official documentation.
- Install the CLI tool and go over the quickstart guide.
We are currently working with researchers in many domains to create reusable Popper tasks and workflows. If you are interested in contributing but are not certain on how to start, please feel free to contact us.
