On Thursdays, we learn code

Have you heard of HackyHour? No, not Happy Hour. We all know what Happy Hour is. HackyHour is kind of like that, but with coffee and code.

HackyHour is an informal drop-in session where you can learn to code, get assistance with code or find out about IT services and support available to you.

Open to everyone with an interest in IT and research, HackyHour aims to improve your understanding and implementation of the technical aspects of research. It’s also another (fun) way to collaborate with researchers at other institutions and the community at large. Did we mention that there’s coffee?

The Griffith University HackyHour crew (Amanda Miotto, Heidi Perrett and Kim Keogh) also host Software Carpentry workshops. These workshops teach you basic lab skills for scientific computing. You can attend an inexpensive class, or learn online (for free!).

Languages such as R and Python are taught at both the HackyHour sessions and the Software Carpentry workshops.

HackyHour sessions are held every Thursday at G’s Wine Bar (alternating between the Nathan and Gold Coast campus). We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting!
