The BioJS Community have partnered with Repositive.io, an SME based in Cambridge, UK, to understand the needs, wants, and limitations of BioJS interfaces applied to industry-based end users. We will be including a round table including representatives from a variety of SMEs and profit organisations.
This is your 5 min claim to fame!
We give you the chance to give a 1 slide presentation talk for a topic on web visualisation, loosely connected to BioJS. You are also invited to talk about your past experience with BioJS.
Please do not forget to submit the ppt presentation for your talk while registering for the conference. We will select 12 lightning talks from all submitted.
Is the hackathon open to anyone?
Yes of course, but please register through the Galaxy Community Conference Webpage so that we know how many people will come and can reserve enough rooms.
Why should I get involved?
What should I expect to happen during the day?
I haven't worked with BioJS or Galaxy before - can I come?
I don't have an idea for the hackathon - what should I do?
We will bebrainstorming possible topics in the beginning of our hackathon, so there will be plenty of possible opportunities for you.
I will have a different project - can I come and code with you?
Yes absolutely. Maybe you are from a company who wants to start using BioJS or Galaxy, or maybe you just have a small free time project that you want to finish. No matter what - if you happen to have project you would like to work on during the hackathon and just need a bit of advice or coding spirit - feel free to code with us. We are happy to help you too!
If you already know your project, please add it here.
Update: We started an open brainstorming document - we would be very happy if you get involved in our discussion.
