Projects may span a broad range of topics, e.g., converting data to NWB, integrating a software tool with NWB, working through the NWB online tutorials, developing new features for PyNWB/MatNWB, and creating documentation.
Design your project in a way that you can make significant progress during the workshop (i.e., in ~2 days). This also means that you should come prepared for the workshop. For example, if your project is about converting data to NWB, then you should know the data and ideally have scripts for reading the data in Python or MATLAB already working.
Suggestions for projects:
We ask that you create a project page with a description of the goals of your project. We will use these pages to connect people who are working on similar projects (e.g. converting data from the same acquisition system) and follow your progress.
Create a new project page by creating a new
README.md file in a new subfolder of the projects folder using the provided project description template and add your project to the project list in the PROJECTS.md file. Step-by-step instructions for creating a new project using GitHub are:
YourProjectName/README.mdas the new file name. Your project name should not have any spaces.
If you have any questions, please ask us on the NWB Slack workspace: https://bit.ly/nwb-slack
Before the workshop, please install the Python or MATLAB software for NWB:
