The event will focus on migration in the Americas with a goal of:

 

  • Contributing to the immigration debate in the US by analyzing and visualizing public data.

  • Building apps, websites and other tools for migrants, nonprofits that work with them, and researchers who study human flows in the Americas.

     

The hackathon is a great opportunity to:

 

  • apply your skills to new and interesting challenges

  • showcase your expertise

  • contribute to a good cause

  • connect with other like-minded people

     

The contest is fun, too: It offers a chance to compete with others, from Silicon Valley to Brazil, from Washington D.C. to Spain.

Participants can follow our list of challenges or of course work on their own ideas. Projects will focus on issues that are local, national, or international.

Please bring:

  1. your laptop

  2. an ID (otherwise you won’t be able to enter the building)

IMPORTANT: Please provide your real, full name on the registration form. And make sure to register by Friday, November 1 at 5 p.m. ET.

For more information about the Datafest, please see the event’s website for details.

 

We all look forward to hacking with you on November 2nd!
