Supporting Big Data Science skills development across the continent.

After last week’s participation at the DARA Big Data Africa School held in Cape Town where 27 students from 9 African countries worked on big data science projects using the IDIA research cloud, we are now also proud to support an additional skills development initiative, the DARA Big Data Hackathon at NUST in Windhoek. More information here, on GitHub.

Our research cloud is used to train the researchers who will make big discoveries and be comfortable using the latest scientific tools and infrastructure for their research.

We are proud to be an active partner in the DARA Big Data programme!
