Hacky Hour is a regular meetup where all researchers – students, staff and university affiliates – gather in a social environment to collaborate and get research support.
Experts and mentors from Sydney Informatics Hub and across the University will be available to advise and answer questions on coding, data analytics or digital tools.
3–4pm, 18 May
3–4pm, 15 June
3–4pm, 20 July
Third Wednesday of every month

|What to bring||If you have a laptop or tablet, bring it along so you can show what you’re working on.|
At our Sydney Hacky Hour sessions you can gain:
Even if you don't have a data problem to solve, come along to network with like-minded researchers, find a collaborator or hack away at your scripts in a friendly environment.
If you have a particular topic you'd like us to cover, please fill out our survey.
Each Hacky Hour will be staffed by experts from a variety of backgrounds.
