Dima enjoys programming since he was a teenager. He is interested in natural language processing.
He spends working days in his office surrounded by monitors and pile of scientific papers. On a weekend, he escapes the office and spends most of the day in a coffee shop somewhere in Central London. To compensate time spent sitting, he does Modern Pentathlon.

This is the second attempt of making this work reproducible. The first was done by Alexander Konovalov, Devasena Inupakutika, Steve Crouch and me at the Collaborations Workshop. Our aim was to reproduce an experiment and run it in Microsoft Azure.
By that time I'd already had a Vagrant box that contained all the necessary software. However, Fedora 20, the OS I used, is not supported by Azure, so we had to use another OS.
Finally, we managed to create a VM image and run the experiment in the cloud. However, deployment took most of the time, because we had to install the system dependencies manually. It was a messy list of development libraries and Python 3.3.
Collaborations Workshop 2014 (CW14) took place in Oxford in the end of March. I was lucky to attend the last day of the meeting dedicated to ad-hock hacking. I would characterize the main topic of the workshop as introduction of qualitative software development in scientific environment. Here are my thoughts, why reproducibility is a dream that easily becomes a nightmare.
Git is a powerful tool, though it has to be configured first.
