The Cambridge Bioinformatics Hackathon 2018

Babraham Bioinformatics is organising a three-day life sciences-related hackathon at The Centre for Computing History in Cambridge on the 10-12th December 2018.  The hackathon is an excellent opportunity to improve your coding skills, network with people in your field, or to try out that project you’ve always wanted to work on but never found the time. Alternatively, you may want to work as part of a team in a field that is completely new to you.

What should I do?
It’s really up to you.  All that we ask is that you work on a computational project with a life sciences focus.  Many of the participants last year came up with their own ideas for a project and worked on that for the three days.  Alternatively, you may want to work on one of the projects proposed by our sponsors, or perhaps join a team that already has a project in mind.

What skills will I need?
The hackathon is aimed at people of all skill sets, from people new to coding through to experts in their respective fields. This is a chance to work in a friendly collaborative atmosphere and have some fun.

How much is it?
Taking part costs only £30 (that´s just £10 per day and with that you will get a free hackathon T-shirt, food and drink and the chance to spend your time in the wonderful Centre for Computing History).

How do I sign up?
