ASA Datafest 2018
ASA DataFest is a data analysis competition where teams of up to five students have a weekend to attack a large, complex, and surprise dataset. Your job is to represent your school by finding and communicating insights into these data. The teams that impress the judges will win prizes as well as glory for their school. Everyone else will have a great experience, lots of food, and fun! While ASA DataFest is a competition, the main goal of the event is to promote collaboration. ASA DataFest is also a great opportunity to gain experience that employers are looking for. Having worked on a data analysis problem at this scale will certainly help make you a good candidate for any position that involves analysis and critical thinking, and it will provide a concrete example to demonstrate your experience during interviews.
