Hack Day Launch

A session at Citizen Cyberscience Summit 2014

Saturday 22nd February, 2014

9:00am to 10:00am (GMT)

This is the launch of the Hack Day, with pitches from each of our Challenge leaders to tell you a bit about their Challenge - with the hope of inspiring you to take part over the course of the day!

Information about each of the Challenges can be found on the main event website: http://cybersciencesummit.org/ch...

We'll have a few minutes at the end that are free for ANYONE to pitch an idea that they'd like to invite folks to work on with them. So don't be shy!

Many of the Challenges have a workshop that is related to the subject, taking place on the same day, so be sure to check out the details if you're interested in learning more.

Taking part in a Challenge simply means coming to that table in G04 at any stage of the day, joining the conversation to see what you can help come up with, and moving any ideas forward as much as possible. That can range from drawing a mock-up, to whipping up a basic web page, or even diving into some code.

You are welcome to form impromptu teams to focus on developing one idea as much as possible, or to roam from table to table to join the conversations and contribute your own insights and expertise to each Challenge.

At the end of the day we'll do a Show & Tell of what folks have worked on, and take an audience vote for some fun prizes.
