An active in-person Hackathon.
Check out the Hackathon badges today! For people unaccostomed to earning badges, badges are a quick credential earned by working through the evidence points and submitting an answer in the form of short pieces of computer code, images/graphs, or links acquired through wrking with a piece of technology. The points of evidence are meant to encourage problem-solving and learning on your own, so there is no time limit on completion. Let me know if working through this badge encourages you to host a Hackathon event of your own.
 Badges must be earned in sequence: Hackathon I, Hackathon II, and Hackathon III.
 Hackathons can also be used to collaboratively solve interdisciplinary problems in a short period of time. For more information, please see: Marshall, J. (2016). In first 72 Hours of Science, SFI postdocs test the limits of transdisciplinary science. Santa Fe Institute News, April 20.
