Hackday at the Barbican

Our last outing to the Barbican saw a small but dedicated group working on projects as diverse as services for open access policies, extracting phylogenetic tree information from PDFs, storing crowdsourced data in CKAN and more. This time we’re going to be bigger and better with a dedicated space which will hopefully be filled by YOU.

If you’d like to come along, please add yourself to the Etherpad and if you have a specific idea you’d like to work on, add that too and you’ll have a couple of minutes at the start of the hackday to tell everyone about it so we can link you up with people who’d like to help.

You don’t need to have an idea for anything to work on or even any coding skills to join, there are plenty of opportunities to get stuck in with other people’s projects and many non-technical tasks, especially if you like writing or design.

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact
