Haven’t started? Let us help with the heavy lifting.

The average developer spends between 20-50 hours on an challenge submission.Good news for you: there are over 257 hours until Big Data for Social Good deadline and $40,000 up for grabs.

That means it’s not too late to start, finish, AND WIN!

We know that a little guidance goes a long way, so why not get a leg up? Here’s the plan: 

1) Identify a dataset and ask a question (We’ve taken the liberty of putting together a few datasets, ready to go with question options -  in case you’re not sure what data to use or what question to ask.)

Want more question & data combos? There are 4 more on the Challenge Data page!

2) Get your Analytics for Hadoop on, by following the sign-up steps and demo app instructions here: http://ibmhadoop.challengepost.com/details/ibmbluemix 

3) Create your interactive data visualization + demo video and submit!

 

Don’t let questions bog you down!

We’re here to help. If you have any questions about the challenge, post on the discussion forum or email support@challengepost.com and we’ll respond on the double!
