Data Diggers: Groundhog Day Hack-a-Thon

Ezra Glenn

Feb/01 Fri 12:00PM-03:00PM 9-450A, bring a laptop!

Enrollment: Unlimited: No advance sign-up

To celebrate Groundhog Day (OK, OK -- it's one day early) and prepare for the inaugural Spring Semester of MIT Data Diggers, we'll meet over IAP to start to dig up (or perhaps hunt down) some data sets to use in the class.  Come prepared to use all your hacking tools (and some good old-fashioned resourcefulness and traditional research skills as well) to seek out rich veins of MIT-related and publicly-available data for use in Spring semester.  Races, prizes, food; data-oriented costumes optional.

Open for all MIT students, whether you plan to enroll in 11.S195 in the Spring or prefer not to take the funnest class at MIT.
