Come to talk about Code, Data, Tools and Science in a social environment. If you want to know how computational tools and code can improve your science/work or you just want to meet “open scienc-y” people: join us. The event is open to everyone. No prior knowledge required. No registration etc. needed.

When and Where

We’ll meet monthly every fourth Wednesday at 5 pm for one and a half hours in the Makerspace Giessen. Location on OpenStreetMap.

Please bring your own computer, as we cannot provide any resources in this regard and then can also work through installations.

Dates and Topics

In addition to the open discussions we also aim to talk about specific topics at each HackyHour. However prior knowledge or interest in these topics is not a prerequisite.
