To further the development of the mantle convection code ASPECT and its user community, current users and developers of ASPECT will be working side-by-side over an approximately 10 day period. Participants will make significant progress both on the development of ASPECT itself, as well as on the models individual users are building for their own research.
Note that the hackathon is not a tutorial. It is aimed at users with knowledge about how to set up an ASPECT model and a specific project for what feature to develop/improve during the hackathon. Senior participants are expected to spend part of their time mentoring newcomers, and it is expected from junior participants to be eager to learn about the inner workings of the code. Please work through the technical requirements page at least two weeks in advance of the hackathon, to make sure we all have a productive time.
The majority of the time at the hackathon will be spent working on the code in an informal setting, individually or in small groups.
