Congratulations to all the teams who participated in DataFest and thank you to everyone who made it a success. In particular, we have to thank GRiD, who assisted with set-up, take-down, and consulted with many students, the Mass Mutual Data Science Development group, who provided fantastic workshops and a few judges as well as supporting us financially, and the Five College faculty who came out to cheer on their students.
Thanks also to our generous financial sponsors, including MassMutual, the American Statistical Association, Google, RStudio, and DataCamp.
