Count Down to the Future of Forestry Hackathon 2020

Good Morning All!

Thanks again for signing up to participate in the Future of Forestry Hackathon. We're one week away from the event kickoff and excited to have you all participating. 


When you have a moment please check the resource section on the event page where you'll find a number of links to review which will provide some background on challenges in the forestry and wood products industry. Additionally you'll find some technical resources that might be useful for the hackathon. Next Monday, Oct. 12th we will release the problem statement and other resources including sample data sets.


A couple house keeping items:

  • Please be sure to register for NEK Entrepreneurship Week if you haven't already. Please remember this hackathon is only open to participants in the United State and Canada. Here is a link to the form:
  • If you would like us to help you pair up with another participant to make a team please let us know so we can help coordinate.
  • Lastly, we will continue to add additional resources through out the week. 


If you have any questions about the hackathon, please post on the discussion forum or contact us directly.
