6th NWB:N Developer Hackathon and User Days
May 13, 2019 - May 16, 2019
The purpose of the hackathon is to bring the experimental neurophysiology community together to further adoption and the development of NWB:N, the NWB:N software libraries, and the progress of the scientific workflows that rely on NWB:N. Members of the community will exchange ideas and best practices for using NWB:N and the libraries, share NWB:N based tools, surface common needs, solve bugs, make feature requests, brainstorm about future funding and collaboration, and make progress on current blockages. The event will also enable NWB:N developers and users to interact with each other to facilitate communication, gather requirements, and train users.
The event is planned for 4 days, where the first two days will focus on user training and use-cases followed by two days focused on core development. Work involves collaborative, open source software development, with a focus on use cases, tools, and core development.
