UPDATE: The hackathon is cancelled, see @aultac’s last message in this thread. When it’s rescheduled we can pick up the conversation here again Be safe, friends!
I wanted to follow-up on various discussions going on within the OATS group and as mentioned during the last few openTEAM calls, about the upcoming hackathon/work session that that we’re hosting at the OATS conference on March 26 & 27, 2020 in Rosemont, IL (near Chicago airport).
The goal of the OATS hackathon is to foster interoperability among our technologies by taking some time to try out each other’s tools and APIs, and do some quick prototyping before diving into a more involved work package.
I invite members of openTEAM, the OATS group, and OATS affiliates to post an idea that you’d like to work on during the hackathon as a way to kickstart discussion and team formation! (Much like we did for the GOAT:Hack at USDA ARS)
- Post an integration you’re already working on and would like to catalyze during the hackathon (thinking back to the work packages.
- Propose a concept you’d like to work on that requires participation of multiple groups (e.g., sending machine data via ISOBlue to FarmOS)
- Post your interest in prototyping a specific tool (e.g., I’d like to try out Trellis in X context using Y type of data).
- …Something else you’re interested in accomplishing with folks from OATS?
Hopefully this provides a useful mechanism to move, as @gbathree says, from “Mud to Bricks”
