We are very impressed by the vast number of 159 applications we have received. That is four times more than we have places!

This shows that the topic is of high interest and there exists an active global community. It was hard to make a selection out of all these fantastic people with very interesting backgrounds out of 31 different countries.

We have now made a decision on the final participants—a diverse group of people from whom interesting results can be expected.

Due to the enormous talents we have seen in the application process, we would also like to keep those involved into the event, who cannot be present in person. At first, we would like you to follow and contribute to the hashtag #codingdurer on Twitter and check our blog from time to time for updates. Before the event starts, we will tell you more details on how you can get involved online.

You will find the preliminary schedule on our website http://codingdurer.de/schedule.html

(We have sent out the notifications on January 16. If you have applied for the event and have not heard from us yet, please check your spam folder or get in contact with us again.)

As written in our previous post, we invite interested institutions to join us and bring their data sources into the creative group of 40 people and see what happens. There are many options how you can present your data at the event. Please get in contact with us.
