CA Elections 2020 Virtual Showcase
October 5, 2020 - October 6, 2020
The California Election 2020 Data Challenge is a month-long data science + civic engagement competition designed to leverage public data to help us understand this year’s ballot initiatives! Check out the official site for more information.
By October 4th all competing teams will upload a short (< 10 minute) video presentation of their project and data visualization (along with the link to the project’s public GitHub repository) to a Virtual Showcase which will run asynchronously on October 5th-6th (for registered teams and mentors only). All teams are encouraged to submit their project (even if unfinished), review each other’s visualizations, and offer helpful, supportive, and constructive comments and questions. By observing the progress of the other teams, participants will not only grow their network and skill set, but also gain insights to help improve their final project. And remember, the most collegial individuals will also win a prize!
