To teach developers, how to build and launch your own bioinformatics apps on BaseSpace, Illumina conducted a two day hands-on hackathon. Here is the summary of the event.

Raymond Tecotzky provided a good overview of basespace, plugged in missing information in various situations. Most importanatly super charged participants & the team.

James Hadfield & Ramesh Hariharan delivered good talks about their work on Genomics and their experience with Basespace.

Sucheth Koppa provided a good overview of BaseSpace Onsite & how you can keep all data on-premises.

Mayank Tyagi & his team stressing the importance of Docker, taught how to build apps on Basespace.  Hands-on hackathon & very informative.

Along with talks, food, wine, t-shirt & USB Drive(16 GB) are also great.
