On Thursday 27th August we were honoured to support our community with their inaugural Data For Good Challenge evening. With a great turn out of technical/data people ready and willing to assist 2 fantastic organisations, namely Katherine Mansfield Birthplace Society and Summer Of Tech they came up with a number of potential solutions to meet their particular data challenges. The conversations have continued both online and face-to-face.
We'd like to make a special mention of Daniil who approached us with the idea and for his sterling work in bringing the night together. And a shoutout to BizDojo for supporting everyone with a fantastic venue, assistance and publicity.
We intend to run these events monthly, with everyone keen to participate again, so please do spend a few hours passing on your technical / data knowledge to help our NGOs/charities that so desperately need it,
And if you are such an organisation, get in touch by filling in the form on our Data For Good Challenge page ...
