hack/reduce, Boston's non-profit big data hacker space, is now accepting applications for resident hackers who will be given access to the center's resources in return for helping "make Boston number one in Big Data".
While the application process is being described as a "meritocracy," applicants who submit before Oct. 14 will get a chance to take a sneak peak at the space and meet other applicants.
The center is looking for three classes of members:
- Resident Hackers , individuals or teams working on specific, spotlighted projects.
- Contributors , who are individuals interested in learning about and advancing Boston's Big Data scene.
- Fellows, who are known experts in the field brought in from time to time to share knowledge on specific topics.
