Get Your Big Data Hackathon On

The UNT Innovation Greenhouse (shoutout to Nancy Hong who is a warrior for startups/entrepreneurs!) is hosting THE Big Data Hackathon at the end of this month, and you won’t want to miss it.

The event will feature Lisbeth McNabb, CEO and founder of DigiWorksCorp, as the keynote speaker on Friday 3/28, and Saturday 3/29 will be dedicated to hacking!

Here are all the details:


This is your town, from Oak Lawn to Weatherford, Westlake to Addison, Denton to Dallas. It’s sprawling and unique and you have a chance to make a real difference in millions of lives in just one weekend.

We’re here to get everyone in one room with all the tools, snacks, mentorship and support you need to take a look at the ocean of data the metroplex creates

We want to see just what you’ll make of it.



From Friday after work, to Saturday afternoon, you and neighbors new and old will get a chance to dive into data from all over our community; healthcare, environmental, civic and more, to identify current and potential problems, and propose solutions small and sweeping to help make your neighborhoods a whole lot more awesome to live in. From exposing data trends to mobile applications, we want to hear from you how to make the Metroplex a happier, healthier, supportive community.


We’ll be there with the data, drinks, and a roomful of mentors to take all your questions. From snacks to prizes, classes to networking there will be plenty of support, inspiration and caffeine.


Whether you are a seasoned programmer, a designer, a student or teacher, a fireman or nurse, we think you’ll have something to give – this is your home after all!


When: Friday, March 28th 6pm-9pm and Saturday, March 29th 9am-9pm

Location: Microsoft Center, Irving Texas

What to Bring: Your laptop, phone and imagination.
