Speaking at the Clean & Green Hackathon 2013

On Earth Day (Mon 22 Apr 2013), I’m speaking at the pre-Hackathon Workshop at the *SCAPE. This event precedes the Clean & Green Hackathon spread over three days (26 – 28 April 2013) at Ngee Ann Kongsi Auditorium, NUS’ University Town.

I’ll talk about marine life, the International Coastal Cleanup Singapore, how we handle data, citizen contributions of mammal records and more along that line.

I told the organiser Ciaran Lyons about how I pass off five html commands as coding experience and he was delighted – “we are trying to attract a diverse range of skills, and a lot of people are unsure of themselves: “how can I be of help if I can’t code?” So that’s a great answer!”

So I’ll also add rapid sharing of expedition data between 10 countries to promote cooperation, redirecting help during the 2004 tsunami and other stories with a touch of digital backbone.

Hope over to cgs.sg/hackathon find out more.
