Open Agricultural Technology Hackathon: after RDA P13

19 Mar 2019

Dear Colleagues,
I kindly invite you to consider the upcoming Open Agricultural Technology
Hackathon that will be taking place at the USDA-ARS Agricultural Research
Center in Beltsville, Maryland -- conveniently right after RDA P13 (April
4-5) and relatively close in location (2.5 hours away, accessible by train).
*Gathering for Open Agricultural Technology Hackathon (GOAT:HACK
)*
GOAT:HACK will be hosted on April 4th and 5th at the USDA-ARS Beltsville
Agricultural Research Center in Beltsville, MD. Registration is free -- and
the goals of the event are to:
- bring together a multidisciplinary cohort of researchers, designers,
developers, and agricultural practitioners working on agricultural
technologies;
- enable open access to data and tools resulting from agricultural
research;
- develop open source technical infrastructure that enables research,
adoption, and evaluation of sustainable agricultural practices.
GOAT:HACK is free to participate, registration is requested by March 22 -
and you can learn more about it here: http://goatech.org/goathack-usda-ars/.
I'd be happy to discuss the opportunity with anyone who is interested in
GOAT:HACK or future GOAT events.
sincerely and best wishes,
Lindsay Barbieri
