In this event series we explore our capacity to use the data we're immersed in to give back to our communities and enrich our lives. We showcase experts and case studies for making positive impacts with data on personal, local and global levels. We participate in data-for-good efforts. We form working groups to tackle social data challenges. We appreciate the latest in data art. And we build our data science and data communication skills while expanding our networks of like-minded data surfers. Datum = something given.
