The official 2015 Montreal Big Data Week Hackathon, hosted by our friends at La Gare (5333 Ave Casgrain) will be the place to be for 24 hrs of data-driven, action packed hackathon excitement.

We want to see the Montreal community build some cool #BigData projects, related to: machine learning, natural language processing, open data, data viz and much more.
