Datafest organizer Teresa Bouza first became interested in creating hackathons as a 2012 John S. Knight fellow at Stanford University, where she sought to help journalists become less afraid of big data. She said the hackathons are also a moment for those who usually work in very different fields to come together and show off what they do.
"Most people have a technical background, since without them you can't do anything, but it's also really important to have people who know the problem, because the developers are really good with the coding but may not understand the issues," Bouza said.

Data is the Key Source in the Computational Platform for Investigative Journalism
Don't be afraid of data. That's what Teresa Bouza wants journalists to know. And with Bouza's new media enterprise, journalists will get the help they need to do more data-driven reporting.
Bouza's project, the Computational Platform for Investigative Journalism, will provide news using data-driven reporting and serve as a hub for data mining tools, training and assistance for investigative journalists.
"There are many more story ideas that are left undiscovered in the data every day," Bouza wrote in her grant application. She offered campaign finance issues as an example.
Bouza cites several reasons why data is being ignored and not being turned into interesting news stories or infographics: the increasing amount of data, the lack of interest in data-driven reporting among news executives, and the dearth of data-analysis skills among journalists.
The Computational Platform for Investigative Journalism will address these issues, Bouza said. "I believe our platform will help significantly advance the state of data-driven reporting because we're in a unique position to show computational journalism is simple and can be easily done."
Basic knowledge of Excel, Bouza said, is sufficient for much data-driven reporting. She expects to provide simple and cost-effective methods of analyzing data, and user-friendly resources and tools to help journalists make sense of this data.
"We aim to provide a one-stop shopping solution," Bouza said, adding that the Computational Platform for Investigative Journalism will generate data-based news stories, provide easy-to-understand software tutorials, and offer training in data-based journalism, including providing consulting services at cost to news organizations on data-mining projects.
Bouza hopes to pay particular attention to ethnic media, women's publications and women journalists in her project. Focusing on women training other women and empowering news organizations with fewer resources, Bouza aims to reach those who are often underrepresented in the upper echelons of the news industry.
"While women are well represented in journalism, they are virtually non-existent in the small community of journalists engaged in data-driven reporting," she said. "Our platform will aim to change this situation."
In addition to offering training via the Computational Platform for Investigative Journalism's website, Bouza plans to conduct on-site workshops at media outlets, and in various cities at hackathons, events during which computer programmers and engineers contribute their skills and time to help data journalism projects.
Eventually, Bouza hopes to develop partnerships with news organizations to regularly help them with their data-mining needs. By assisting news organizations as well as reporters quickly sift through large amounts of quantitative information for stories, Bouza's project would allow the news organizations to keep costs down while getting solid results.
