This is a three day event running from 21st-23rd September 2020.

Babraham Bioinformatics is organising an online three-day life sciences-related hackathon.

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 work on?

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 time came up with their own ideas for a project and worked on that for the three days.

To see details of the previous hackathon projects, please click the following links: https://f1000research.com/slides/8-212

It may also be possible to work on a project proposed by someone else, and we will provide further details of these projects on our site as and when they become available. Alternatively, if nothing springs to mind, then why not use the time to learn a new programming language or computational skill.

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 will it work?

We shall meet up via Zoom. Participants will then be free to work on their projects, although we shall try and organise online social events once a day’s coding has finished. At the end of the event, there will be the opportunity for volunteers to present their work, although no-one is under any obligation to do so.

Would you like to start a group project?

Once you have signed-up, there will be the opportunity to propose your communal project on this website.

How much does it cost?

It is free to take part.
