ABOUT WATERHACKWEEK

Waterhackweek is a 5-day hackweek to be held at the University of Washington in partnership with the University of Washington eScience Institute. Participants will learn about open source technologies used to analyze water-related datasets. Mornings will consist of interactive lectures, and afternoon sessions will involve facilitated exploration of datasets and hands-on software development. Successful applicants will pay a $100 registration fee and be expected to cover lodging, travel expenses and some meals. Financial support may be available based on need.

Information for Applicants

To best benefit from the program, participants are expected to have some experience with Python programming and with analysis of water data (e.g. time series and remote sensing analysis, vector mapping, modeling, etc.). Successful applicants will pay a $100 registration fee and be expected to cover lodging and travel expenses. Financial support may be available based on need. For those who do not know Python or wish to improve their skills, we are organizing a Software Carpentry workshop Feb. 7-8, 2019 on the University of Washington campus. There are no registration fees for this event. We will also provide guidance to participants on Python and other tools through self-guided study.
