Hacky Hour @ Deakin

What is...

Hacky Hour is a periodic meetup that serves as a relaxed and social environment where students and researchers can share their ideas, problems and requests for help and on-going support, and work collaboratively in overcoming research challenges pertaining to programming, data, digital tools, and publishing.

We welcome researchers and students from all disciplines who, may or may not have experience in programming or data analytics. We are always happy provide demonstrations and short lessons that can facilitate and encourage further learning. Be supported and support others :)

The motivations of hosting Hacky Hour are best described on the Griffith University website:

Hacky Hour is open to anyone with an interest in IT and research. The catch-ups aim to improve researcher’s understanding and implementation of the technical aspects of research, as well as fostering collaboration and information sharing within the community at large.
