DataHack is the first data-driven hackathon in Israel, designed to bring together the Israeli data community. The hackathon is a 48-hours event where data enthusiastic programmers, designers and researchers combine their skills to build innovative solutions for real world problems. Registration is open to all, but applications will be carefully reviewed for skills and experience. Participants may form teams of up to 5 people, and will have complete freedom selecting data, tools and project ideas.
DataHack is all about data. Every project is required to include processing and/or analysis of some interesting data at its core. We will provide you with different data sets from our sponsors, partners and online sources, but you are free to bring your own data.
Some of our sponsors will be offering cool challenges for you to tackle, with awesome prizes for the winning team of each challenge. Each challenge will have teams competing to create the best solution to a specific problem over a specific data set or API. Will give more information on these challenges as the event draws near, but you’ll have enough time to consider them! Additionally, we will provide you with a curated list of cool and interesting datasets with some ideas for things to try on them. Don’t forget, though – you can work on any dataset or API you want!
