EcoHackNYC @ ITP
Friday, November 4, 2011 at 7:30 PM – Saturday, November 5, 2011 at 6:00 PM (ET)
Visit us at EcoHackNYC.org
We’re passionate about understanding global environmental change, and haven’t seen many meet-ups that bring together the diverse community of scientists, hackers, designers and hobbyists that share our interests. Now, we are excited to have you join us at the NYU / ITP for this exciting event!
5-minute ignite talks (Friday, Nov.4, starting at 7:30 in the Common Room in the 721 Lobby)
Have a cool project? New data to share? Tell us about it! (20 slides * 15 seconds) + auto-advance = 5 minutes of enviro-geek fame.
This is the place to convince people that your data, your visualization idea, or whatever, is interesting in hacking.
Sign up for an ignite talk with EventBrite (or just shoot us an email).
Hacking with data (Saturday, Nov. 5, all day, at ITP)
This is an unconference, which means that we will start by people presenting ideas on what to hack or talk and dividing in small groups.
Bring your laptop to be ready to hack. Or if there’s something you’ve been itching to talk about, propose a session.
We will have a page to submit ideas if people want to submit them before.
EcoHackNYC is being coordinated by:
Javier de la Torre (@jatorre) and Andrew W. Hill (@andrewxhill) of Vizzuality
Robin Kraft (@robinkraft) of REDD Metrics
