Hackweek publication
Data science fellows Daniela HuppenkothenAnthony Arendt, Jake VanderPlas, and Ariel Rokem, and others, have a new paper published titled "Hack weeks as a model for data science education and collaboration." The paper was featured on UW Today in their press release "Hack week: Study supports collaborative, participant-driven approach for researchers to learn data science from their peers."
It was a pleasure to host this week's Oceanhackweek, an event dedicated to exploring data science in oceanography. Stay tuned for videos and web content on this new offering!
NeuroHackademy may have wrapped up two weeks ago, but attendees are still expounding its virtues. Find insight from co-organizer Tal Yarkoni on his website, detailed notes from a learner and a blog post on the event. Photos above courtesy Chris Gorgolewski.
