Hackathon Overview

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.
