DNA Digest's Third Hackday 5th of April - WC1E 6JA 10a Capper Street, Wayra, London. Can we build the first step solution to improving data discovery to benefit disease research? Today, open sharing and easy access to DNA sequencing data from clinical samples is limited due to privacy concerns and interoperability difficulties. The lack of sharing impedes the progress of genomics research, affecting all genetic disease research from cancer to rare diseases. DNA Digest is working to solve these issues for the benefit of research, patients and their families. As part of this work DNAdigest invites you to a day of brainstorming, ideation and hacking to build the first prototype solution in making finding these data sets easier. Registration starts at 9:00 and the Hack Day activities start at 9:30 Hacking finished at 17:00 our detailed agenda is being prepared. Who is invited? Everyone with an interest in the topic including software developers, scientists, patients, medical professionals and family. A broad perspective from participants will allow for innovative ideas and unexpected solutions. Our previous hackdays have benefited vastly from this multitude of experiences and perspectives, please join us. I love data, but know nothing of genetics? You do not need to be well versed in neither genetics or data, as long as you are keen for solving problems. Our discussions will revolve about the cultural as well as the technical issues that need to be addressed. What happens at the DNAdigest Hack Day? We will begin with a basic introduction to the problem in the morning addressing the issues that hinder easy data access today. The general discussion will be followed by group workshops to identify the stakeholder perspectives, and in the afternoon we will form groups based on interests and hack and prototype our way towards feasible solutions. Among other things, we will be exploring concepts related to: feasibility of solutions, Data reproducibility and open science, incentives for users to share access to data For the technically minded, we will be exploring problems related to: user interface, database model, indexing of metadata, data security Why would you get involved? Easier access to data will speed up advancements in research for treatments, cures for genetic diseases and benefit human wellbeing. At DNAdigest we believe that the research community owe good data management to the patients that have consented for their data to be used for research.

“Enrich the experience of the city in an application for a personal wearable device that contributes to and interact with (Rotterdam) Open Data.” In short, the challenge for this Hackathon consists of the development of a 'Personal API', where, instead of developing a service based on data in the open domain, the service adds data to the open domain. This Personal API can, in turn, be used in other applications and services. Think of it as a "data of the crowds".

HackTheTownHall 2014 SATURDAY 26 APRIL 09.00 – SUNDAY 27 APRIL 17:30 In response to the recent flood disasters, this year’s HackTheTownHall will focus on creating apps and tools to help disaster emergency preparedness, response and recovery by residents, local agencies and governments. What it’s all about To make use of public (and some private) datasets –tidal and river level data, flood maps, groundwater and flood risk data etc. from the Environmental Agency, Ordnance Survey, the Met Office and other agencies, to build useful tools for citizens and governments to better cope with flood emergencies. Event schedule The hackathon takes place over two days, Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 April 2013. Saturday 26 April 2014 09.00-10.00: Registration and breakfast 10.00-11.10: Briefings (see below) 11.10-12.30: Group networking and coding 12.30–1.30: Lunch 1.30–2.00: Ninety second shout-out: say what you hope to build; say what resource you need to build it; invite others to join you 2.00 onwards: Coding Format Network with others to form teams. Use the shout-out to recruit team members. The maximum number in a team is four. The coding period runs from Saturday until 3.00pm on Sunday afternoon. Make sure to fill out a team sheet and begin to prepare presentations for the pitch. Software resources Devs may build their prototypes via native code, APIs or templates. You may use any data analysis, processing or visualization tool you need to build your app.

How many? The booked venue is a community hall and should have tables for at least 15 (they tell me). I've put 20 on the tickets so that we can plan for food etc. Will worry about extra if that problem arrives. Please book early to help plan! Budget/Sponsored: Breakfast/snacks/lunch Internet, if the venue has it available Local wifi network + server with CPAN Development environment on server available if required (you'll just need a laptop/tablet with ssh+keyboard) Room hire (tables, chairs, power) Attendee pays: Transport Accommodation (block booking may make cheaper, but only with planning).

This is our second City of Houston hackathon. You can watch a short video of the first hackathon here. This hackathon is Houston's contribution to Code for America's National Day of Civic Hacking. Using publicly accessible data, software developers can build applications that improve the quality of life for Houston's citizens. In Houston, open data has led to a data visualization of the general fund, as well as a data visualization of 311 service requests. Both projects got their start at hackathons. Publishing non-critical datasets allows the City of Houston to harness the power of our talented technology community.
