What?

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. Anything you build is your own. Create a tool to make your every day life a little easier.

The topic will beĀ Automation. Use code to automate tasks can be very simple, but save massive amounts of time. Highly repetitive tasks can be replaced with automated processes, sometimes with just a few lines of code.

Who?

Geoscientists. Geoscientists-in-training. Students. Academics. Beginners are definitely welcome. We will be hosting a one-day 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.

Where?

SeisWare Offices – #900, 940 6 Ave SW

When?

The weekend before GeoConvention(May 10-11). We’re planning on hosting an evening brainstorming/team-forming 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.

Do I need a team?

Nope! Feel free to show up on your own ready to collaborate and create.

What’s in it for me?

Learn more about programming. Engage with others in solving problems collaboratively. Win prizes! Get swag! Walk away with all of your own code for your own use.

We’ll do our best to have several data sets available. There will be raw data as well as data loaded into SeisWare projects for use with our SDK.
