Description

Hacks/Hackers London X Count - Data Hackathon

Hacks/Hackers LDN is delighted to be partnering with Count for a special event this October. Come and practise your analytics skills and meet fellow data enthusiasts at this fun, informal hackathon totally free of charge!

Count is a new data publishing platform changing how we interact with data online. The Count team want to put an end to the dry, uninspiring data files that litter our websites and instead turn them into beautiful, engaging content which anyone (whether data enthusiasts or beginners) can explore, share and discuss all in one place.


What will we be doing and who's it for?


This free event is for people who enjoy making new discoveries using data and want to develop and test their data skills. We will work in groups (or individually) to uncover interesting and surprising insights about specific challenges set by the hosts. There will be a choice of datasets for you to pick from on the evening.


We will:

  • Familiarise ourselves with the datasets (many of which are exclusively prepared) and identify what questions you want to ask

  • Analyse and interpret the data

  • Share back our findings and see what others have discovered

Bring your laptops and chargers as this will be an interactive session!


People of all levels of analytical experience are welcome, you don't need to be a data expert already. We will be running the event using Count (count.co, @counthq), a new data publishing platform which makes it easier and quicker for anyone to explore data online and share their discoveries. It only takes a few minutes to learn, so don't worry if you've not used it before. You will be able to prepare data tables within Count to download for use in other tools, if you prefer.

Venue

IDEALondon, 69 Wilson Street, London, EC2A 2BB

After entering the building on Wilson Street, go to the IDEALondon cafe area on the ground floor, then downstairs to the event space.


IMPORTANT

Due to the nature of this event, we have a strict limit to the number of people we can admit into the venue.

We do understand that sometimes people need to cancel at the last minute. Due to these cancellations, we release more tickets than the venue has capacity for.

We don’t like to turn people away, but we have to operate a first come first served policy. To make sure you get a place, please arrive as early as you can. We suggest 6.30pm for a 7pm start.
