What is a Datajam?

Vancouver Datajam 2021 is a virtual one-week, hackathon-like event where participants develop their coding skills and met other members of the community. Participating groups includ RLadies, PyLadies, SFU Scientific Programming, Data for Good and Women in Data Science. The event will be hosted 100% virtually from September 18-25 2021.


The event starts with workshops in R, Python, GitHub, and more. Participants will then have the opportunity to gain hands on experience in data science via a series of projects. Join the Vancouver DataJam either as a participant or team lead!
