Malawi Data Science School 2021 is the first of its kind in Malawi: For a whole week, regional experts, young talents and international guests are meeting around the subject of Data Science.

In the lead-up to the Data Science School, a week of tutorials in Python and Data Science takes place, the Python Week of Code.

When and where

Events will take place at Mzuzu University’s new Open Distance Learning facility in Lilongwe, Malawi. Accommodation will be offered in the nearby surroundings, making it a comfortable, fun and productive stay for everyone involved.


Please stay tuned, as the Call for Participation is now open and awaiting your proposals!

Who are we?

We are a group of people from Mzuzu University, Copenhagen University and FAIR (Fair Allocation of Infotech Resources) and Python Namibia, joining hands to build a community around Data Science and Python in Malawi. We hope that the event will inspire and build long-lasting bonds and projects for the ones involved.
