October 27 @ 08:00 – October 29 @ 17:00 CEST
Mark your calendars to join us for the October 2021 nf-core hackathon!
With the recent release of the new nf-core template for Nextflow’s DSL2, in this event we will be going full-steam ahead with conversion of nf-core pipelines from DSL1 to DSL2. The main objectives of this hackathon will be adding nf-core modules and rewriting existing pipelines to the new Nextflow language format.
For Nextflow novices, we will be looking for help in writing Nextflow modules of commonly used bioinformatics tools.
For more experienced developers we hope for contributions to writing subworkflows and pipeline code.
In the spirit of collaboration and knowledge sharing, we plan to pair up both novices and experienced developers in pair programming to help get newcomers up to speed on writing and contributing nf-core modules through a pair-programming session for a limited number of participants. Make sure to sign up by September 27, 2021 to participate in pair-programming!
This event is entirely virtual and we are attempting to support people in all timezones. Do get in touch with us if you’d like to help us out!
