25–28 April 2022 - a hybrid event hosted by the Great Lakes Observing System (GLOS).

The IOOS Code Sprint is a 4-day hackathon style event on 25-28 April 2022, organized by the Great Lakes Observing System (GLOS) and the Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) Office. Over the course of the event, teams of developers, academic researchers, and community members will work on projects that address pressing data and information challenges. Projects will relate to the IOOS mission to produce, integrate, and communicate high quality ocean, coastal and Great Lakes information that meets the safety, economic, and stewardship needs of the Nation.

Researchers will sign up to work on topics ranging from ERDDAP, General Python, Biology/Ecology, Cloud, IoT, Metadata, and more. Teams will be lead by individuals who have a keen interest in specific topics. Some of the already identified topics include:

  • Using ERDDAP in the IOOS RA/DAC archive pipelines.
  • User documentation on “how to get started with your erddap server”
  • IOOS Compliance Checker refactor and documentation/examples for plugins
  • OBIStools-style QC library in Python

If you have topics of interest, see the track list page for contribution guidance.

The event will take place virtually and in-person, using a combination of video conferencing (TBD) for meetings and seminars, and discussion forums (Slack invite link - see #code-sprint-2022 channel) for ongoing communication. Outputs will saved to GitHub.
