Code for Pizza Hackathon

Would anyone be interested in spending a weekend doing a hackathon / data-dive for charity? The project in this case would involve helping out the Hampshire County Council build a model to more effectively allocate school funding for special needs children.

    Hi David, Bud and Jake were taking the lead on this event. I have no idea what the plans are, if its going ahead or if there is a venue.

    Might be worth direct messaging them. If it does go ahead I hope you all have fun.

    Look out for the next meetup presentation event soon. We have been trying to tie down some great speakers. Also if you'd like to speak at an event in Sept/Oct/Nov please let me know

    Hello. I'd be interested in helping out, but I'm still learning a lot and only consider myself a beginner programmer ... what specific skills do you need?

    Sounds really interesting bud, have we been given any seed data?

      Hi Matt, the council have three datasets which they are willing to provide to help with this. They haven't released the data yet, but I think a database expert from work expressed an interest in helping with the data normalisation / munging so the hackathon can concentrate on the data science rather than spend a weekend putting a database together : )
