Programming Hacky Hour

January 16, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Hacky Hour is an opportunity for you to get feedback on a current programming project from your peers at UCSF or to work independently.

Dedicate an hour to working on your programming project. Have you been trying to learn programming but can’t find the time? Bring your lunch, get away from your desk, and join us for an hour of coding in a friendly environment. You: bring your laptop and a current project. Your programming peers may be able to answer a couple of questions. If you need 1:1 help, sign up for Office Hours.

Location: CC151 is part of the FAMRI Library at Mission Bay, located in the Rutter Center (where the gym is).


Bring something you want to work on, e.g. an image analysis project or a programming exercise. Find collaborators by sharing your project topic for 1-2 minutes. You’re also welcome to use the space to work on your own.


No requirements. Optional – if you want to install software, here are instructions:


This is not a class and there are no materials. If you’re new to programming, we can point you to a few tutorials like Intro to RIntro to Python, or Data Cleaning with OpenRefine. Find more class materials in the Data Science Initiative CLE and take a look at our recommended reading list.


This event is attendee-driven. No instructors.

Note: this event is a brown bag lunch.
