Open Science Hackday, 31 Mar 2012, London

March 7, 2012 in Uncategorized

At the last working group meeting it was decided that we should run a hackday on open science, spending the day driving forward coding projects and coming up with new ideas. So, come along and join us in person in the London Barbican foyer or virtually via Skype, IRC and Etherpad!

There are several tasks which don’t require the ability to programme so don’t be put off if you’re not a coder, we’d still love to have you along! All that’s required is enthusiasm and interest.

Date: Saturday 31 March 2012
Time: 10am to 6pm (and later for those who want to carry on)
Location: Barbican Foyer and online
Sign up for numbers here.

Possible ideas we could work on are below, although feel free to add some to the pad linked above or bring your own on the day and we’ll pick a few to focus on:

  • Open Research Reports (continuation of work from SWAT4LS hackathon).
  • Generating a Data Watch website.
  • Pulling data from citizen cyberscience projects straight into CKAN.

We hope to see many of you there!
