A day and a half long event where geoscientists can get together to engage and build something new. Bring a laptop, form new teams, build new relationships, create something, show it off. Create open source projects designed to solve every day problems in your industry. Show off your creations to other industry professionals.


Geoscientists. Geoscientists-in-training. Students. Academics. Beginners are definitely welcome. We will be hosting a coding workshop prior to the event for those with minimal programming experience. There will be a limit on participants, so sign up quick to reserve your spot. We’ll have some mentors wandering around to help you with your coding.

How Much?

Free! We’ll be providing drinks and food for both days of the event. Especially caffeine.


Friday night – Brewery A

Saturday – Central Library/Telus Spark/MRU


The weekend before Geoconvention. We’re planning on hosting an evening brainstorming/teamforming session prior to the Hack day. We’ll be serving up drinks and snacks to get the creative energy going and plan out the next day of hacking! Saturday will be an all day hack session. Demo presentation time will either be fit in at the end of the day on Saturday or at the SeisWare booth during Geoconvention.

Friday, May 10 5pm-9pm

Saturday, May 11 8am-5pm
