Other items of note for the Datathon:
Each participant should bring their own laptop and software for data analytics / visualization. If you have extension cords or power bars please bring them along.
We do not assign you to a team. We want you to work with the data and objectives that you feel most passionate about, so come with an open mind and be ready to learn.
You do not have to work with the same team 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 us know.
You do not have to stay for the entire day. We hope that you will find a project you can dig into, but you are always welcome to come and go as you please.
