UD COVID hackathon
A Hackathon is generally a colocated event where people tackle specific challenges in small groups to produce rapid results that outline issues and promising approaches to solutions. At this time, COVID-19 certainly poses many challenges and it also forces events to online platforms. This online Hackathon organized by the UD Data Science Institute will focus on Delaware-specific challenges related to the ongoing pandemic. This is not an epidemiological hackathon. Rather, we will look at how the COVID-19 crisis and local response is affecting Delaware and Delawareans, including:
- Effectiveness of the DE response to COVID-19 compared to similar/neighboring states
- Support and resources for the UDel community
- Environmental impact of the shutdown
Within each of these three tracks, we will propose some hacks, but we also encourage you to propose projects (there is a dedicated slack channel for discussion of potential projects).
