5th NWB Hackathon for New Users, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (remote viewing available)
April 25 @ 8:00 am - April 27 @ 6:00 pm UTC-7
The Neurodata Without Borders: Neurophysiology (NWB:N) Hackathon is a hands-on activity lasting several days in which neurophysiology researchers create solutions using the open source NWB:N software packages.
Participants work collaboratively on solutions that use the NWB unified data format for cellular-based neurophysiology data, which is focused on the dynamics of groups of neurons measured under a large range of experimental conditions. In contrast to conferences and workshops where the primary focus is to report results, the objective of the Hackathon is to provide a venue for creators and users of neurophysiology open-source software to collaboratively work on any related research projects.
This year there will be a development focused Hackathon in Early April in Seattle, and then a user on-boarding tutorial Hackathon in late April in Berkeley. Ad-hoc meetings are added occasionally. We plan to have at least one more Hackathon in 2019.
