We are incredibly excited to announce that we will be setting up shop all day at the Strata NY Conference on October 23rd with a bunch of great data problems for you to stop by and work on! We will be serving non-profits and charities, using data to to solve some of their toughest problems, so bring your data skills and get ready to make the world a better place.
If you're a socially conscious data hacker who wants to make the world a better place, RSVP now! If you are unfamiliar with our events click here to see a short video of our first New York DataDive.
Entrance to our DataSprint will be completely free, regardless of whether you are attending Strata NY or not. We will have food throughout the day so come and stay all day or just swing by for an hour or two and see how you can pitch in!

Other items of note for the weekend
- There is a Github repository setup to use for sharing code, data, and analyses during the event. The repository is located at: https://github.com/datanoborders/Datadives, with a subdirectory for the Strata NY event. This will be our primary resource for capturing everything developed at the DataSprint, so please use it for sharing and collaboration.
- We do not assign you to a project. We want you to work with the organization and data you feel most passionate about, so come with an open mind and be ready to learn.
- You do not have to stay the entire day to participate in the event. We hope that you will find a project you can dig into, but you are always welcome to come and go as you please.
- You do not have to work with the same project for the whole day. Again, we hope that you will find a project to work on to completion, but if at any point you feel like you want to change simply let the ambassador from those teams know.
