Welcome to DataFest2021 - A data science bootcamp

This year, all DataFest participants will develop their own small-scale research project focusing on COVID-19 case rates over space and time. Lectures and demonstrations will be provided (in both R and Python) as support and inspiration for this effort, but participants will be responsible for self-directing the project based on their own interests. Each day, as you develop your project, we will touch upon key parts of the research data lifecycle (data acquisition, cleaning, visualization, analysis, dissemination), and highlight best practices.

Prerequisites: Participants should have at least basic knowledge of R or Python.
