Hey Data Do-Gooders! Time for DataJam!

Mark your calendars for August 05, 2018 and get ready to interact with our nonprofit partners to help them in their journey of using data for social good.

We will start the session by introducing our nonprofit partners to talk about commonly experienced data challenges and the problem statements. Then, we will form small groups to discuss the problem statement and ideate together to build impactful solutions.

This event is part of a Sprint that will include another DataJam and DataDive sessions with the partners, leading to long-term projects.
