Event Report : Managing Research Data Hack Day

Publié le 22 mai 2012, par Thérèse Hameau

DevCSI worked with the JISC Managing Research Data Programme and the JISC Orbital Project to organise a Managing Research Data hack event in Manchester from 3rd-4th May, 2012. The event was designed to bring together software developers, project managers, data librarians and experts with an interest in the area of managing research data to share, talk, collaborate and create useful solutions.

Participants were encouraged to develop ideas, paper prototypes or even working code to address some of the issues raised by delegates from a range of different projects. A prize was available for the best idea, with the winners receiving their expenses paid to get together and develop their idea further. There were also opportunities to share skills throughout the event.

The event followed a relaxed hack event format, opening with a series of lightning talks from participants describing their projects and areas of interest, followed by a period of brainstorming, development into the evening, and reporting back to the group to gather feedback.
