Join the BIDS community on the BrainHack Mattermost

BIDS is joining the BrainHack Mattermost!

We are proud to announce our home for hosting BIDS organization instant messaging: the BrainHack Mattermost platform! In the past few years, several BIDS channels have independently been created on Mattermost by the community. The Steering Group and Maintainers Group have chosen to recognize the BrainHack Mattermost as a member of our organizations’s official communication suite. This platform will live alongside our other official communication channels:

We have listed below our current set of BIDS channels. We will be establishing several BIDS channels related to: BEP development, community discussions, and more! Check it out and create your own channel! Please be sure the channel name contains bids in the title to increase findability.

Mattermost is an open-source alternative to Slack. The user interface and experience is very similar to that on Slack. One may join a channel, make a channel, or private message.

To find our BIDS channels, please navigate to Mattermost and click More... at the bottom of the PUBLIC CHANNELS section. A prompt will pop up enabling you to search for our BIDS related channels. If you have any issues, please message Franklin on Mattermost: @franklin_.

The BrainHack project seeks to bridge the neuroscience and data science communities through hackathons and unconferences. To do this, they convene unique conferences comprised of researchers from around the world with diverse backgrounds and interests to develop our next generation of open source software for neuroscience. These workshops consist of educational activities, along with plenty of development time. If you are interested in learning more please visit their website, check out their paper, and take a look at a step by step guide for organizing a BrainHack yourself.

We look forward to seeing you on Mattermost!
