CodeRefinery hackathon in Stockholm: Building a Nordic community of research software engineers. The idea behind this event is to bring together people who are working with code and/or data in research, in an informal environment where ideas can be exchanged, expertise shared and real work done! Welcome to the first CodeRefinery hackathon from November 6-7, 2019 in Stockholm, Sweden. Read more information about the registration here.

We start Wednesday morning and conclude Thursday after lunch.

Location: KTH Library, Osquars backe 31, KTH Main Campus.

What you can do at the hackathon:

Bring your own code or data and get suggestions/help on how to better organize, test, document, and share your code.
Participate at a ReproHack where we try to reproduce a nominated paper and learn how to make software papers better reproducible. You can nominate your own paper and then you get feedback about how to improve your own work.
Work on new or existing CodeRefinery lessons.
Share your expertise with others and learn many new tricks and tools from others.

What we will ask you to provide when registering:

Nominate two papers for the ReproHack (can be your papers or somebody else’s).
Suggest at least one project that you would like to work on with others.
If you bring your own code or data where you would like to get expert suggestions, please give us some background information.
