Hacking marathons (Hackathons) or coding festivals (Codefests) are informal meetings focused on hands on programming and coding, with in person collaboration potentially allowing much more rapid discussion than remote discussion by email or IRC. OBF Hackathons have focused on collaborative coding, documentation, and better interoperation between OBF and other bioinformatics open-source projects.

OBF Codefests and Hackathons

Since 2010, people from the O|B|F project communities have regularly organized or co-organized short 2-3 day events preceding the BOSC conference.
