What we're about

The Research Bazaar (ResBaz) is a worldwide event promoting the digital literacy emerging at the center of modern research. This group aims to provide research tools through peer-to-peer interactions and constant engagement of a community of researchers.

We host weekly ("Hacky Hour" and "Coffee & Code") and annual (The Research Bazaar Festival) events aimed to continually engage researchers and improve their computing skills, reinforce learned techniques, and push them into developing their computing knowledge.

Our aim is to equip researchers from all career stages with the digital skills and tools required to do their research better, faster, and smarter.
