The BS in Health Data Science program at the Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health is having its first open hackathon and invites all interested IUPUI students to come out!
Join us on Friday, September 21 for a fun, evening-long event to learn about the R programming language and how data can literally “confound” us! This event is free to attend but the cost of dinner will not be included.
The agenda for the evening is as follows:
- Meet & Greet at Burgerhaus: We will meet at Burgerhaus at 5pm for introductions, meet and greet, and have a quick bite to eat. The address to Burgerhaus is 335 W 9th St D, Indianapolis, IN 46202. The cost of dinner will not be covered. Visit www.visitburgerhaus.com for menu and pricing.
- Interactive & Collaborative Hacking: After the meet & greet, we will walk a couple blocks to the Health Information and Translational Sciences building (room 1110) to engage in some exercises with the R programming language. Students will be provided an introduction to the R programming language and visualization libraries in R.
We're excited to show you how:
- data aren’t always telling us what we THINK they’re telling us.
- health data science methods can be used to gain a better understanding of
the relationship between smoking, alcohol consumption, and lung cancer.
- data science is applied to college admissions data in the United States.
We plan to end by 10:30pm or 11pm.
NOTE: If you plan to attend late, please note that the HITS building will be locked, so you will need to arrive and wait by the Canal side doors for us to arrive from Burgerhaus. Better yet, come to Burgerhaus and join us!
Students are required to bring their own laptops as computers will not be supplied.
