A NEON #WorkWithData Event

The NEON & Data Carpentry Hackathon

The National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) hosted a 3-day lesson building hackathon to develop a suite of NEON and Data Carpentry data tutorials. The tutorials will be used to teach fundamental big data skills needed to work efficiently with large spatio-temporal data using open tools. Data lessons were initially developed in R.

Learn more about the Hackathon on the NEON website.

Hackathon Results

This hackathon resulted in four lesson series that are used for workshops provided by NEON and by Data Carpentry. The lessons are hosted on both the NEON Data Skills site and the Data Carpentry site. .

The hackathon also resulted in several lesson outlines that have not yet been completed. These are in rough draft form and contributions are welcomed.

The Spatio-Temporal Data

The data used for the lesson building includes NEON and other complementary data.
