R Workshop

R is a FLOSS programming language used to perform statistical analysis. The software is cross-platform and can be used via its CLI or via a third-party GUI. While it isn’t the simplest software to learn, it is quite powerful and its capabilities can be enhanced through the thousands of packages available via the Comprehensive R Archive Network. In addition to scripts used to generate plots and display the results of complex calculations, R can also be used to make interactive HTML5 presentations that can be viewed in desktop and mobile form factors.

Hands-on Git

One does not simply come to a Webfest and leaves without knowing Git and loving GitHub (if that's not the case already). Git is a version control system and it can keep track of changes in your code. GitHub keeps your code safe in the cloud and provides amazing collaboration tools. People use these tools in hackathons (and pretty much everywhere) because it makes their lives easier. They are also fun to use!
