A2 Data Dive

Sat, 11/11/2017 - 11:30am to 9:30pm

North Quad

The annual A2 Data Dive will bring together novice and experienced data scientists to help local organizations become more effective through data organization, manipulation and visualization. This event is open to anyone who is interested, regardless of background, and will include a variety of possible projects for people with a wide range of skill sets. Participants will have the opportunity to meet new people, learn valuable skills and give back to the community.

This year's A2 Data Dive will take place over one intensive day, all of which will be focused on digging into data and enjoying A2 Data Dive hospitality. Volunteers will break into work groups based on interest and skills to complete various projects, culminating in presentations on the day's work. Past participants have made interactive maps, conducted content analysis of YouTube comments, created heatmaps of populations reached, proposed new database schemes and much more.

Those interested in volunteering should register in advance
