Welcome to the 2018-ICID-Hackathon wiki!
This GitHub page is designed to help attendees understand the resources offered at the 2018 ICID Hackathon. Please use the navigation bar located on the right to learn more about the available data sets and see how they can be used to create projects.
At the 2018 ICID Hackathon, participants are asked to solve infectious disease challenges rooted in water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) conditions. At the start of the event, everyone will have the chance to address the audience for one-minute to describe a WASH-related problem they wish to tackle while at the Hackathon. Participants are asked to describe problems, not solutions when making their pitch. By describing a problem, everyone can contribute to the development of a solution that addresses commonly overlooked barriers to implementation.
Essentially, there are six steps to a Hackathon:
If you have never been to a Hackathon, don't worry! The organizers and mentors are here to guide participants through every step of the process (with a little help from coffee, colored markers, and pizza).
The solutions you create have the potential to revolutionize health on a global scale. Plus, your team has the chance to win one of four prizes - the $1,500 USD Elsevier Foundation Award, 2 $250 USD ProMED Awards, and a personal use license to Aeroterra's ArcGIS platform.
We hope you are looking forward to the event and cannot wait to meet you in Buenos Aires later this month!
See you soon!
