24 hours of non-stop Data Science.
It started in London but is taking over the world.
Data Science London in partnership with Big Data Week is organizing the first global data hackathon from 1pm London Apr 28 to 1pm London Apr 29 (UTC + 1).
The competition will be hosted on Kaggle, so anyone, from anywhere in the world, can participate. You can download the data, hack along with the data scientists in London, see your ranking on the real time leader board, and be eligible to win the global prize.
Data science communities all over the world are joining in Big Data Week by hosting simultaneous hackathon meetups in their own cities. From London to San Francisco, New York to Finland, and the list continues to expand. List of different locations: http://www.datathon.us/
