DataFest 2019 was held at Chapman University May 3-5. DataFests are 48 hour hackathons where teams from Southern California are given data from a single source and compete for Data Insight, Data Visualization, and Use of External Data, as well as any other awards at the judges discretion. There were teams of 3 to 5 students from 7 different southern California universities or colleges.
This year the data was from Rugby Canada Women’s Sevens (their national team of seven women a game for seven minute halves [versus the usual 15 players playing 40 minute halves]). After a brief introduction to the DataFest, data and the “challenge” expressed by the data providers, team members of the 8 winning teams who can participate in the Celebration will present there findings. Those presentations will be followed by a Round Table Discussion
