Hacky Hour

Come along to talk about code, research tools, and open science in a social environment!

We hold sessions on the last Monday of the month, in person at Wikipedia Munich, Angertorstraße 3, Munich, from 16:30 to 18:00.

Each session will have a theme. If you have a related problem, bring it along to work on it and get help or pointers! We will ensure that there is at least one knowledgeable person in the room, and a facilitator to keep things in check (and order pizza).

Sessions’ agenda:

  • Brief round of introductions and description of the problems you’ll be working on during that session
  • Formation of possible groups or tandems, if participants have tips to exchange on certain topics
  • Hack
  • Wrap-up: progress and next steps

You can subscribe to the mailing list to get reminders or suggest themes:

You can share additional resources and ask further questions on the LMU Chat*, under the Open-Science-Center Team's OSC-hacky-hour channel.

Contact Dr. Malika Ihle with any question!

You can choose to download the app (Rocket Chat, open source equivalent to Slack) for easier use. You can then join the Open Science Center team by following this link: There are several channels in this team, which you can join by clicking the hashtag symbol (#) on the top right of the window. One is called #OSC-welcome-and-introduction: please introduce yourself there!. The other one is called #OSC-community-questions-and-announcements: You will be able to use this in the future to request help with your open science questions or post announcements of open science related events or opportunities.
