# Hacky Hour on the MPI CBG/CSBD campus

The hacky hour is meant as a common venue for developers to exchange knowledge. The event itself is curiosity driven by the community. The presention should never be longer than 30-40 minutes, so that there is enough time to try things out and ask plenty of questions. The code discussed should be safed and merged into this repo. Note: the code must be in a reproducible shape (use a markdown readme if you don't want to use a build system) so that your peers can reproduce the steps you made at any time.

## Suggesting a topic

Open an issue and describe what you are interested in. At best, name a presenter that is willing to give a presentation. We will then let the community vote for the topic. It is the responsibility of the submitter of a topic to find a presenter.

Contrary to the name, the hackyhour is open for any topic related to boosting peoples productivity when using programming languages. It can range from clean code, to new or old libraries that helped you do a specific task.

### Languages?

Use any language of your choice where you believe the community would be willing to use it. For more general discussions, the presentation should be attached to a language that a majority of interested peers is using. E.g. if you want to discuss functional programming and like to show it in haskell, feel free to do it but do not expect too many listeners.
