Data Hackathons: Lessons Learned & Best Practices

#datahackworkshop launched with the WBDIH’s Data Hackathons: Lessons Learned & Best Practices Workshop

Featured as part of the first-ever International Data Week

Co-hosted by the West Big Data Innovation Hub (WBDIH), Research Data Alliance (RDA), and Federation of Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)

By convening data scientists, engineers, designers, and other stakeholders to work on challenges with “marathon”-like intensity, data-focused hackathons can spark meaningful collaborations and produce viable solutions. This hands-on, interactive workshop seeks to empower our community leaders with lessons learned and best practices from hackathon organizers and participants. Workshop attendees will meet and collaborate with other innovation enthusiasts from academia, government, nonprofits, and industry as we capture insights about the design, implementation, and scalability of data-focused hackathons.
