Inspired by hack-a-thons and organized in the participant-driven,
unconference style, the Open Science Codefest is for anyone with an
interesting problem, solution, or idea that intersects environmental
science and computer programming. This is the conference where you will
actually get stuff done -- whether that's coding up a new R module,
developing an ontology, working on a data repository, creating data
visualizations, dreaming up an interactive eco-game, discussing an idea, or
any other concrete collaborative goal that interests a group of people.

Suggest a session topic or review proposed sessions in the Open Science
Codefest Github project (

To suggest a session, create a "New Issue" and apply the "proposed session"
