What is DataHack?

DataHack is the first data-driven hackathon in Israel, designed to bring together the Israeli data community. The hackathon is a 48-hours event where data enthusiatic programmers, designers and researchers combine their skills to build innovative solutions for real world problems. Registration is open to all, but applications will be carefully reviewed for skills and experience. Participants may form teams of up to 5 people, and will have complete freedom selecting data, tools and project ideas.

  • Data

    We will provide you with different data sets from our sponsors, partners and online sources, but you are free to bring your own data.

  • Community

    Besides a yearly hackathon, DataHack is also a vibrant community of data scientists and machine learning experts in which you can take part through our Facebook page, the DataTalks meetup series and our newsletter!

Data Challenges

Some of our sponsors will be offering cool challenges for you to tackle, with awesome prizes for the winning team of each challenge. Each challenge will have teams competing to create the best solution to a specific problem over a specific data set or API. Will give more information on these challenges as the event draws near, but you'll have enough time to consider them! Additionally, we will provide you with a curated list of cool and interesting datasets with some ideas for things to try on them. Don't forget, though - you can work on any dataset or API you want!


The DataTalks meetup series is hosted by different companies, with each meetup usually featuring two speakers. Talks touch on a variety of subjects in machine learning, statistics, data engineering and other data science related topics. Besides the year-round meetup series, we also host the yearly DataTalks mini-conference on the middle day of each year's DataHack, giving hackathon participants access to a series of techincal and theoretical talks, and allowing hackers and mini-conference attendants to mingle.
