flyer for 2019 hackathon

The 2019 Big Data Hackathon is a collaborative event where domain knowledge experts, business analysts, programmers, graphic designers, journalists and map makers work together to create useful solutions to important problems.

We are seeking innovative ideas, solutions, and apps for Smart Living — Smart Health, Smart City, Smart Education, Smart Environment, and Smart Transportation. Participants can use their skills in journalism, business, marketing, data, public health, urban planning, programming, mapping or GIS to make San Diego a better place to live. It’s not just for programmers; the emphasis on design and creativity means that all skills will be critical to the team’s work. Teams will be formed by the Hackathon organizers if they are not formed prior to the event.

We will also provide training and workshop opportunities for participants who may need to get more programming experience or data analytic skills.
