Dear KNIME Developer Community (and anyone interested),
We are holding a KNIME Hackathon in our lovely Konstanz office (or as we call it: KNOffice) during September 18 - 25 and we’d like you to join!
Bringing developers, hackers, and researchers from different fields together with KNIMErs to work on development projects is our motivation for this event. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t contributed to KNIME yet or developed a Community Extension. Everyone is welcome to join (and if you are still a little unsure if this is for you, do get in touch with any questions you might have!): We’d very much like to connect with new community members!
The agenda for our 7-day hackathon is still pretty flexible. Are there topics you’d like to discuss? We’d like to streamline the schedule to include your ideas, so please do let us know what you’re interested in. Here’s what’s planned so far:
- September 18 (10:00 AM - tbd): KNIME Development Learnathon
- KNIME Node development
- Tooling, e.g. custom update sites
- September 19 - 25: hacking on projects
At the hackathon you’ll have a nice spot in which to hack, and drinks and food will be provided (so that you don’t starve while you are with us!). Just bring your own laptop, power cable, and a project idea that is related to KNIME.
Like to join? Send a short summary of your project (incl preliminary work), as well as how this fits in with the bigger picture, e.g. your (scientific) career, to me, email@example.com. And do let us know about any special needs or requests, disabilities, etc. you might have.
The KNIME Hackathon is a free event. We are also looking to support Early Career Researchers and Developers with travel grants. If you are interested in applying, please also provide a short motivation why we should support you with a travel grant.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Konstanz!

Frequently asked questions
Do I have to stay for the whole duration of KNIME Hackathon?
- Not at all! Feel free to join us for a couple of days only, e.g. for the KNIME Development Learnathon and an additional day to do some hacking. It would be great if you could mention that in one of your emails, though…
