    Software Hack Day 2014

    Welcome to the SPIE 2014 Hack Day Wiki!

    Date: Thursday 26 June 2014
    Time: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

    The SPIE Astronomical Telescopes + Instrumentation meeting will host its first SPIE Software Hack Day in 2014. This will be an all-day open event in conjunction with conference 9152, without formal presentations. The goal is to bring creative minds and talented developers together to share ideas, experiment, solve problems, explore or create new data in innovative ways.

    Software is an area where the right combination of ideas and skills can lead to rapid results, so we hope that many budding and experienced developers will join this inaugural event, eat pizza, write code, and make history.
