This hackathon will be held in advance of the Nextflow Summit 2023 in Boston, America 🇺🇸. You can find out more information about the summit at https://summit.nextflow.io.

This hackathon is not meant to be a training event but aimed at people that already have a basic understanding of Nextflow and/or nf-core. If you’re interested in learning Nextflow and nf-core, there will be free online workshops spanning all global timezones in September. For more information and the training registration link, see the Community Foundational Nextflow Training and Community Advanced Nextflow Training pages.
