Geohackweek will be happening next week (Sept. 11 - 15) in various locations on the Seattle campus.
A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to last week's Astrohackweek conference! Dozens of attendees participated in astronomy-focused data science workshops, seminars, project collaborations and networking events over the course of five days.
