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.
