It's Not Too Late to Volunteer for the DataDive

I wrote in a post in June about the good that DataKind does by using teams of volunteers with data science knowledge. It's not too late to join the DataDive this coming weekend in London (July 17-19). If you'd like to contribute your time and knowledge, check-out the sign-up page on Eventbrite. Will I see you there?

What is a DataDive?
DataDives are weekend events that bring the data science community together with the non-profit community to tackle tough data problems in a short period of time. DataKind UK has selected specific charity projects to work on over the weekend. You need to bring your own hardware and software, your data skills, and the belief that you can help change the world for better!

Who are the social organisations bringing projects to the event?
DataKind UK will be working with My Help at Home, Ark, Centrepoint and The Key.
