Texas DataHack is an all day competition hosted by MLDS and Texas Convergent where you can put your data science, coding, and creativity skills to the test and create a meaningful project with real world data. You will get to explore and manipulate interesting data sets to figure out how interpret geolocation data. Food and prizes will be supplied, and we will also have workshops the week of the event to prepare you for the competition, so if you are new to data science, don’t let that discourage you from applying, all majors are welcome.
