Monthly HackyHour meetings in Göttingen http://hackyhour.github.io/Goettingen/

View on GitHub


Come to talk about tools for your research and/or computer stuff in a social environment.

If you want to know how computational tools and code can improve your science or you just want to meet “open scienc-y” people: join us. Especially if you’re stuck on a computational problem in your research feel free to bring it along, we might be able to help (or at least point you in the right direction).

No registration etc. needed!

When and Where

We meet every four weeks on a Tuesday at 6 pm at “Neotopia”. Feel free to join the Gitter chat and/or the mailing list if you have any questions/topic suggestions beforehand.

We might order Pizza (but you can bring your own food) and usually sit together until 7.30 pm. You are invited to stay for the OpenChaos, an open event of CCC Göttingen.

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


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. Online discussions for these topics are accessible via the following links or Gitter.
