Hack Day 2016 at AAS 227 in Kissimmee, Florida
When: Friday , Jan 8 2016 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
We are asking and expecting all Hack Day participants to plan on staying for most of the day.
Registration is encouraged to facilitate pre-meeting coordination, but if you didn't register you're still more than welcome to participate in the Hack Day.
What is a hack day?
We are going to get together to write code or work on some other project, fast. The idea is to design a do-able project and fully execute it in one day. Or at least go down trying. Come with a project, or come with deployable skills, ready to deploy.
Examples of hacks from years past: astro4astro, Summary of AAS 223 Hack Day, last year's AAS Hack Day project pitch page, Astrotweeps, Fund me Maybe? video, Astrobetter airline guide, Summary of AAS 221 Hack Day,
