What is the Data Geek Challenge?

The Data Geek Challenge is a movement by the data community to discover and tell the most compelling stories using data. New data visualization technologies allow us to uncover value from our data and discover new meaning. The Data Geek Challenge urges us to demonstrate how we can turn data into meaningful insight that allows us to take action and that will ultimately lead to change however big or small.

Who can participate?
