Facilitated by the eResearch team

Hacky Hour is a weekly meetup where researchers can congregate to work on their research problems related to code, data, or digital tools in a social environment.

Here are some reasons you might want to come to Hacky Hour:

  • You want someone to show you the basics in R.
  • You want to know the best way to show some spatial data on a map.
  • You recently attended an Intersect training course and want to get some more help using tool X.
  • Your honours student is pestering you to use version control and you want some help getting started.
  • You need to get a huge dataset from a colleague overseas and want to know the fastest way to do it.
  • You need a quick drink while you wait for your scripts to finish running…
  • Or you just want to hack away at your data-crunching scripts in some good company.

Even if you don’t have any problems you want solved, come along to help solve someone else’s. Help a colleague overcome their fears of using Git or show off a really useful tool you just discovered.

Any and all academics are welcome, just show up! If you have a laptop or tablet, you might want to bring it along.
