The Environmental Data Initiative (EDI) hosted a hackathon at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM, June 12-14, to collaboratively design and develop software supporting the activities of information managers and scientists working with environmental data. We used the Open Space Technology approach to guide project development and gained valuable insights into hosting a successful hackathon from Deborah Paul and Mathew Collins of iDigBio.

EDI received feedback for its Request For Comments (RFC) for establishment of a data registry, from participants of the ESIP working group along with EDI’s email list of environmental information managers. Subsequent updates on the code registry development can be found here.
