8th NWB Hackathon: User Days and Developer Days
May 6, 2020 - May 9, 2020Free
The Neurodata Without Borders: Neurophysiology project is an effort to standardize the description and storage of neurophysiology data and metadata. NWB:N enables data sharing and reuse and reduces the energy-barrier to applying data analytics both within and across labs. The purpose of the NWB User and Developer Days is to bring the experimental neurophysiology community together to further adoption and the development of NWB, the NWB software libraries, and the progress of the scientific workflows that rely on NWB. Members of the community will exchange ideas and best practices for using NWB and the libraries, share NWB 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 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 (May 6-7) will focus on user training and use-cases followed by two days focused on core development (May 8-9). Work involves collaborative, open source software development, with a focus on use cases, tools, and core development. For further details, see our event website.
