TheSpace Apps NYC Bootcampis a series of workshops designed to connect Space Apps Challenge hackers to tools & information which will prepare them for the hackathon. The bootcamp has two main themes: technology & science. We organize workshops run by our tech sponsors in which hackers are onboarded onto software tools & cloud platforms meant to improve the quality of their projects. We also organize science talks in which scientists from NASA & local academic institutions give in depth presentations on space science topics related to this year's Space Apps Challenge.
Having attended the Space Apps NYC Bootcamp, hackers will be better equipped to choose a challenge, form a team, & then hit the ground running when the hackathon begins!
