While the platform itself is proprietary, we intend to provide free licenses for academia, as well as for individual non-commercial use. We are growing an open-source ecosystem of Datagrok extensions that include scientific methods, visualizations, predictive models, connectors to public and private data sources, and applications.
To bring the development community together, we are starting a series of meetings focused around extending the platform. The meetings are open to everyone, but will be most useful for developers or power users comfortable with writing scripts (there will be separate “office hours” for users). There will be a natural progression - we will start with the basics such as describing the platform possibilities, API basics, setting up the environment, and then moving on to more complex things. With time, we hope there will be guest speakers as well. In addition to learning how to extend Datagrok, this is also your chance to influence the way the platform is evolving!
The meetings will be held every two weeks on Fridays 9am-10:30am EST, starting on May 8th. Each session will be recorded and made available publicly as a reference material and to make on-boarding new developers easier. There will be a separate topic on this forum created for each meeting in advance, so that we could suggest topics before, and keep discussing them after the meeting.
