The datasprint

On its last day, the Summer School will host a so-called “datasprint”–a hackathon based on data. What is a hackathon, you ask? A hackathon is originally a gathering of developers organized by team around project bearers with the objective of producing a prototype application in a few hours. In our case, the datasprint will be an opportunity to put into practice the technical skills learned during the Summer School. Teams will choose a research topic, and then collaboratively collect data about it. They will then continue by interpreting the gathered data, and finally attempt to develop a historical narrative based on said data.
