Data Hack for Good 2020

* Now postponed to September 2020 *
The Data Hack for Good organising committee has decided, in light of the ongoing and fast changing situation with coronavirus, to postpone our planned meetup and hackathon.
We look forward to hosting the event later in the year and we thank everyone for their understanding.

The Allstate Data Hack for Good, is taking place in the Computer Science Building at QUB (18 Malone Road) on Saturday and Sunday 21st-22nd March 2020. There will be refreshments and food throughout the event, on the spot giveaways as well as prizes totalling over £1000 for winning participants.

Join us for our launch party, food and refreshments provided, on 20th March from 18:00-20:00 at the Allstate NI Building Belfast.

Open to technologists of all experience levels and backgrounds, with the goal to use data and technology to make life better in Belfast.

Allstate will be providing training on AI, visualisations, design-thinking and other skills at the event.  We will also be providing childcare facilities on Saturday and Sunday.

There are two challenge/prize tracks—one for students and one for professionals.

Participants are encouraged to use any open data sets they can find; however, a curated dataset (Belfast Bikes data) will be provided for entrants to explore urban mobility.
