invite you to join us this winter for the second Apollo Developers Hackathon in La Jolla, California.

For three days developers will work on new features of interest to their research communities, will be able to improve on existent Apollo & JBrowse features, and will collaborate in the development of features of interest to other colleagues. 

Participants should: 
- be able to set up your own Apollo server before arriving to Berkeley; including Postgres, Tomcat, etc.
- code comfortably in JavaScript (client) and Java (server).

What will we do at the hackathon?: 
The plan is still brewing, but we have a few ideas: 
- New tracks for visualization of variant data. We want interactive tracks, and tracks that aggregate many data at once. Including exploration of synergies with with the myvariant.info tool.
- Integration of JBrowse / Apollo with Gene-Wiki.
- Usage of EBI's protein modification data format (some examples of their implementation at http://www.ebi.ac.uk/pride/archive/).
- Creating a plugin to design CRISPR experiments.
- your ideas go here!

Please send your suggestions for feature development, your questions, and any additional comments to the Apollo Developers email at: apollo [dash] dev [at] lists [dot] lbl [dot] gov

When: Thursday January 14 - Saturday January 16, 2016 (immediately after PAG).
Where: The Scripps Research Institute, Molecular and Experimental Medicine Building, 3545 Cray Court, La Jolla, CA 92121. USA.
