Upcoming workshops and events
Welcome, Oceanhackers! Oceanhackweek, a five-day learning hackathon aimed at exploring, creating and promoting effective computation and analysis workflows for large and complex oceanographic data, will run from Monday, Aug. 26 through Friday, Aug. 30 in various locations on the Seattle Campus.

The studio will close early on Friday, Aug. 30, at 2 p.m., and will be closed all day on Monday, Sept. 2, in honor of the Labor Day holiday. 
Data Science for Social Good
The Data Science for Social Good teams presented the results of their 10-week, data-intensive projects this week, concluding another successful summer! Find blog posts on each project on our website (including one on I-405 traffic congestion pricing, newly published this week), and final results will be published on our website shortly as well.

Career Fair
Company registration for our fall 2019 Data Science Career Fair is now open! Register today for the opportunity to recruit some of the brightest minds in data science for jobs and internship postions.
Rob Fatland, UW IT director of research computing, helped put together the team which developed the Interactiveoceans website. The site allows users to explore real-time data on light, temperature, mammal vocalizations, and other variables collected by more than 140 instruments located within the ocean ecosystem.
Human Centered Design & Engineering
Cecilia Aragon, senior data science fellow, is the co-author with Katie Davis, of the new book "Writers in the Secret Garden." The book is highlighted in the UW News article "UW books in brief: Tribal sovereignty and the courts, mentoring through fan fiction, UW Press paperback editions."
