The hackathon is self-organizing and informal. People form small groups or
work alone on something they find interesting/useful. There shouldn't be
any problem changing groups.  Last year there were also a couple of
tutorial sessions done on the hackathon day: one on writing KNIME nodes for
the RDKit and one on doing Machine Learning with Python and the RDKit.
Something like that could also happen again if we have volunteers to
organize special-interest sessions.

And, my second question : do we need to be very experimented with rdkit

The UGM as a whole is, I think, useful for people who aren't experienced
RDKit users.

The hackathon could also be. For example, if there was a particular project
that was being worked on that you found interesting, you could help provide
test cases, documentation, requirements, etc. Or you can just observe and

Does that help?
