We start Wednesday morning and conclude Thursday after lunch.

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

Welcome to the first CodeRefinery hackathon!

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!

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.
