TODD Mentors

Do you have trouble finding a topic to work on or a problem to solve? Are you having problems identifying or finding data? Do you need assistance with programming, analysis or visualization tools? Well you are in luck this hackathon since we are going to have lots of mentors to help you. Our mentors are subject matter experts, data gurus and programming wizards! Anyone can chip in their talents to help others out and Mentors can still work on interesting projects during the event.

If you are interested in helping out as a mentor, let us know at the beginning of the event or e-mail Ian Henshaw in advance.

TODD Miscellaneous

We promise not to blow out the fuses and have coffee ready for when you arrive on Saturday!

There will be several options during the year to continue with your projects. The first one NC Datapalooza kicks off on May 16, 2015.
