provide participants with a common (programming) language, which they
will then apply to historical data provided for the workshop “hackathon”.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the workshop is entirely online.
All the talks will be broadcasted online, allowing for questions and
comments from the live as well as the online audience. The second day
