Flowing Datathon updates

Posted to Site News  |  Tags:  |  Nathan Yau

Many of you now have Visualize This in your hands and have probably gone through a number of tutorials. Now it’s time to put what you’ve learned into practice. I’m fleshing out the details of a Flowing Datathon. I don’t know what it’ll be like yet — other than it’ll involve an interesting dataset over 24 hours and some prizes (and of course, fun) — but if you’d like to keep up-to-date either to get involved or watch, I’ve set up an email list.

Sign up here.

Oh, and if you have ideas for what would make the event special awesome, feel free to leave your suggestion in the comments.
