One month left – start your draft

There is month left in the Big Data for Social Good Challenge. Beat the deadline rush by getting your submission ready early. Submissions are due March 3rd before 5pm ET. Please let us know how you're doing here.

Start your draft now

Starting a draft is a good way to make sure that your app meets the requirements. There’s nothing worse than getting to the deadline, only to realize that you’re missing a key component. And remember: once you begin a draft, you can save and edit it at any time prior to the submission deadline.

Prepare your video

Don’t forget, your submission must include a video showing your app and should explain the insights gathered from the data and the process and method used in order to reach that insight, including the tools and algorithms used.

Too often, participants leave this video to the last minute without realizing that it’s an important way to showcase your work to the judges. If you need some help getting started, we’ve got you covered!

And - if you're having trouble with Bluemix or Analytics for Hadoop, make sure you check out the Step-by-Step Hadoop Demo documentation and video.


We’re here to help. If you have any questions about the challenge, post on the discussion forum or email and we’ll respond as soon as we can.
