Do you have a coding project that could benefit from collaboration, or
software skills you’d like to share? If so, check out the Open Science
OPEN SCIENCE CODEFEST 2014
WHAT: Open Science Codefest will gather researchers from ecology,
biodiversity science, and other earth and environmental sciences with
computer scientists, software engineers, and developers to collaborate on
coding projects of mutual interest.
WHEN: September 2-4, 2014
WHERE: The Fess Parker Hotel in Santa Barbara, California
COST: Registration is free. Rooms are available at the Fess Parker at a
discounted rate. Register here:
Inspired by hack-a-thons and organized in the participant-driven,
unconference style, the Open Science Codefest is for anyone with an
interesting problem, solution, or idea that intersects environmental
science and computer programming. This is the conference where you will
actually get stuff done -- whether that's coding up a new R module,
developing an ontology, working on a data repository, creating data
visualizations, dreaming up an interactive eco-game, discussing an idea, or
any other concrete collaborative goal that interests a group of people.
