A MULTI-CITY HACKATHON ON
NOVEMBER 2-3, 2013 | #americasdf
AT A GLANCE
Do you write code? Work with data? Research migration issues? Work with migrants? Report migration news? You are invited to our Datafest. You can participate in more than one way even if you live outside the region.
The event will focus on immigration to North America and Europe and human flows between and within countries in Latin America as well as on general population shifts within the United States and Canada. Let's leverage the surge in mobile, social, computing power, data analytics and address the challenges and opportunities of migration in innovative ways!
Make an impact!
Write awesome code and build web applications, mobile apps, tools and resources that will help migrants to manage their daily lives, experts to examine existing patterns and emerging trends, NGOs to provide services, journalists to report migration news and societies to combat human trafficking.
Shape the future!
Analyze data and help policy makers and advocacy groups to better understand issues and develop better policies. There are challenges in all steps of the process: collection, preparation and analysis.
Showcase your skills, compete and take a prize! Top two among the winning teams at each location will be nominated for the event's global awards.
Let's get started!
Registration will open in the Fall. In the meantime, please use the collaborative features of this website to connect with others, learn about challenges, discuss project ideas and find teammates.
