What is data week? why is it so called?
Data week is an event or workshop conducted to share the knowledge and information which one knows. This knowledge is shared in less duration of time may be days,weeks and even months and years,to a shorter period it called as data week.When he/she share their knowledge other get to know about and even they get improved by shared it to others.
To my knowledge, Data week has started many years long and is used in different prospectives. One use it for lectures,one for practice,and other for work.However its main intention is to shared data.
How is this data-week different from that ?
This data-week usually started to share the knowledge to many number of people.This is conducted by a Organisation called Swecha, who’s main aim is “When knowledge is shared among two people those two gets more knowledge.Likewise when those two share their knowledge few other get knowledge from them”.
Swecha,as an Organisation is meant to share the information that humans need, in a good and effective way.It is a free software and open hardware based community working for knowledge barring no Profits. The people from Swecha who work as volunteers conduct events to share the information and knowledge that they have known to every people all over the world.
Events that Swecha conducts are listed as
Techdays, summer and winter camps, data-week,etc.They share knowledge may be a technical or non-technical staff. Technologies that Swecha teaches includes:-
AR and VR (JS,Aframe,WebGL,LeafLet,Open Street Maps),
Data Analysis (Superset,Pandas),
Design (inkscape, openshot, blender).
Other than that they also conduct debates, group discussions, screening, Group Activities etc.
