OceanHackWeek (OHW) 2022 concluded on August 19th after five days of collaborative data exploration, peer learning, and software development. Expanding on a successful hybrid event in 2021, OHW22 was a global virtual event with six regional satellites around the world to accommodate more diverse learning environment preferences, as well as to better address the demand […]
This year the eScience Institute hosted another summer of our hackweek programs, including OceanHackweek, SnowEx Hackweek and NeuroHackademy. The sudden shift to a remote setting in spring 2020 brought new challenges for our eScience research team, and we came away with some valuable lessons learned and ideas to incorporate into this year’s iterations of hackweeks.

In early March 2020, as the dimensions of the Covid-19 pandemic started to become clear, the Waterhackweek organizing team was only three weeks out from hosting its in-person event when they made the tough decision to postpone the hackweek until August. They joined several other hackweeks, all faced with the challenge of figuring […]
The third annual OceanHackWeek (OHW) program was held entirely online on August 10th through 14th this year. The weeklong-program combines data exploration, peer learning and software development as participants dive into the interdisciplinary nature of oceanography, from genomics to global surface temperature. 47 OHW 2020 participants embraced Python and R, the two most widely used […]

Oceanhackweek, a five-day learning hackathon focused on exploring, creating and promoting effective computation and analysis workflows for large and complex oceanographic data, was held Aug. 26 – 30 on the Seattle campus. We asked participants to give us their thoughts on the impact attending the event had on them; find their thoughts below.
The eScience Institute hosted its inaugural Oceanhackweek Aug. 20 – 24. As the first of its kind, we were excited to discover how the participants felt about the event, and offered to publish their reflections. Three participants took us up on our offer; these are their insights, very lightly edited.

The recent publication of a Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences article describing hackweeks as a model for data science education and collaboration was very timely: it came out just as Oceanhackweek, a new hackweek, commenced at the University of Washington. Oceanhackweek is a week-long workshop (August 20 – 24) […]
