Code Retreat Dublin
Saturday, May 28, 2011 from 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM (BST)
At coding day HQ we will be launching our first (of many) code retreat. For those unfamiliar with a code retreat, it's a hack day with a focus, the angle placed solidly on solving interesting technical problems.
How the code retreat will work:
On the event itself a hacker will be paired up with some from science background where possible with suggested problems to solve, however, before the event itself we will have some problems listed that hackers/scientists can work on.
You can pair up with someone before the event or on the event itself.
On the day itself just bring your laptops along and a fun attitude, if you have any interesting problems please bring them along also.
The event is open to all skill levels, there will be more experienced coders there on the day to help out, in terms of the languages and development there will be people the following skills:
The goals of the coding retreat are to work with others & and learn how to solve interesting science-y problems.
We need some help with this as it's our first time running this, so we are looking for you to get the word out and get some scientists or engineers involved. So please Tweet a link to this post to encourage more scientists to get involved.
Thanks to Science Gallery for hosting Code Retreat Dublin.
