TWed Fall 2014 (archival)

Printer-friendly version

Starting with the Fall 2011 term, "there's always something happening on Wednesday Nights in the Tetherless World!"

Logistics (Fall 2014):

About TWed:

  • TWed Talks are informal overview talks and tutorials on topics of interest to the Tetherless World community. TWed gives members and friends of the lab the chance to share tools and expertise. TWed Talks are not intended to be lectures; they are expected to be highly interactive and fun! TWed leaders are strongly encouraged to include live "hack" activities in their session plans.
  • TWed Hackspaces during the TWed time are informal group work sessions inspired by the Hackerspace movement. This is a time when TWC people will "be around" and you can rely on the "right" people being available to answer your questions and help with your hacks. This is also a great opportunity for project teams to "hack" together on problems, with the knowledge and resources of TWC surrounding you.

Schedule of TWed Topics and Leaders (Fall 2014):

Possible Fall 2014 TWed Topics (still to be scheduled):

  • Talk: Research Data Management for Scientic Communities (DCO Data Science team)
