Hack4ac is a one-day hackathon in London, England, on July 6. Its goals are:
- Demonstrate the value of the CC-BY licence within academia. We are interested in supporting innovations around and on top of the literature.
- Reach out to academics who are keen to learn or improve their programming skills to better their research. We're especially interested in academics who have never coded before.
It looks like fun—if you're in the area and interested in getting involved, they'd be happy to have you there.
