NAM Hack Day 2014

We’re excited to say that this year NAM is running it’s very first Hack Day! In just a single day we’re looking to prototype ideas that mix technology, data, science and communication in new and interesting ways. Perhaps you have an idea about how to combine multiple astronomical datasets, or want to build better plotting library for researchers ? Do you need to visualise a dataset, or do you have a brilliant and innovative idea for communicating astronomy online? Whatever your interests bring your laptop, enthusiasm and ideas to the NAM Hack Day on Wednesday 25th June.
