Americas Datafest: Global Winners and Runners Up!

Datafest is a hackathon that brings together programmers, engineers, journalists, NGOs, data scientists and subject matter experts  over a weekend of intense collaboration to make a difference in important issues. The best teams usually combine the expertise of technology specialists and subject matter experts. This is why we invite  people with all types of expertise to participate.

Global Winners and Runners Up!

November 27, 2013

We have the global winners and runners up in each category!  

Our judges have enjoyed the teams’ presentations. They were also very impressed with the breadth of ideas and diversity of approaches shown in the projects.

Choosing the winners was a challenging task which is not surprising. The teams worked hard during the Datafest and the nominees put an extra effort during the week after the event. Thank you all for your energy and enthusiasm.

Without further ado, here’s the list and congratulations!
