Frequently Asked Questions

What's a Datathon?

A datathon is not unlike a hackathon, in the sense that you will show up, team up with friends or strangers should you want to, and work together to analyze provided data-sets and draw conclusions.

You will be able to attend workshops to teach you about the basics of data science, machine learning, and the libraries you should know to succeed.

This event will expose you to working with real world data, new friends you can pursue projects with after the event, and sponsors who are looking for avid data scientists to offer opportunities to.

Where is it?

The DS3 Datathon will be held in Price Center East from 8am-9pm on April 20th, 2019.

How many people can I have on my team?

Teams can have a maximum of three people total.

Do I need to be a part of a team?

Nope! You are welcome to participate solo.

Do I need to form a team before I attend Datathon?

While it is easier to have your team in place before the event starts, we will be holding a team-building mixer on the day of the event. Check out our schedule so you don't miss it!
