Tutorials + Peer-to-peer learning + Project team-based work
What is a hackweek?
A hackweek is a participant-driven workshop that blends data science education, community building, and project work over a short period of time (one to two weeks). The events are highly immersive and allow participants to work directly with data science professionals to co-shape projects and educational outcomes. Hackweeks often help individuals and teams engage more effectively in open and reproducible science.

“The hackweek was an excellent experience for me! I met a lot of people who were supportive and helpful, and gained hands-on experience beneficial to my research. I would attend again and encourage everybody to apply!”
