// It's DataDive Season!
75 data scientists. 4 NGOs. 2 days. The UK chapter of DataKind just hosted their very first DataDive and it was a smashing success! Powered by coffee and good will, data enthusiasts of all skill levels split into four groups to make a difference for four amazing NGOs: OxfamGB, Community and Voluntary Action Tameside, Hampshire County Council, and HelpAge International. The HelpAge International team's work visualizing the best and worst places to grow old was even featured on the Guardian!
Feeling left out? Itching to brush up on your data skills for the greater good? Well wait no longer, our next DataDive is coming up in New York City!
Get your free tickets for what's sure to be an exciting weekend, November 15-17, at New Work City in Tribeca.
// Our Newest Partner: Knight Foundation
We're thrilled to announce our new partnership with Knight Foundation. Together, we'll be working to support data science in news, civic engagement, and more. Thanks to a generous $250K grant from Knight Foundation, we're growing to add two new chapters, three more DataDives, and ten new DataCorps projects! Read more here
