Hacking at OHW22#

How will the projects be conducted?#

We have put together a few questions that can help you propose a project in GitHub discussions.

On Monday August 15th we will have a brief “project setup” session for an overview of all projects already proposed up to that point, and give another opportunity to pitch new ideas that may be formed throughout the day. Project proposals must be submitted by the end of this day (Day 1). Each satellite may have its own, specific deadline time, so please connect with your satellite or the global event for details.

Tips for getting started#

  • Potentially choose something that you’ve been interested but haven’t had the time or skills to do before, or something you can continue to work on post OceanHackWeek!

  • Hacking is a community activity! It’s okay to choose projects that you can’t accomplish alone as other people will be there to help you, both at OceanHackWeek and outside of it!

  • Help your group member: you might be the person they need to solve their problem, and vice versa.

  • When discussing, pitch your explanation to the least experienced hacker in the group, and you’ll end up better understanding what you’re trying to do, or need to revise your idea.

  • You can mix programming languages as needed in order to get started, but do check in with your project mentors and group members to make sure your efforts are straightforward to be absorbed into the project.
