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.  Join the conversation with #datahackworkshop!
