Data Science Hackathon – online

This is a 1-day event for students, developers, entrepreneurs, modellers and of course… data scientists who would like to join the Data Science Hackathon of the Delft Software Days – Edition 2018 remotely.

The participants will be given 2 complex challenges they can choose from, real datasets, and 2,5h time to complete assignments. The tasks will focus on hydrodynamics and water quality. The completion of the assignments will need a mix of knowledge such as physical processes, programming, policy, and skills such as the ability to provide data-driven solutions. You will be grouped in teams based on your skills.

It is a competition, therefore there will be a winning team!

Never heard of a data science hackathon? See for example:

The day will start with a Google Earth Engine tutorial, where you will learn how to process petabytes of Earth Observation data. All you need for that is a Gmail account. Sign up to!/.
