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: 

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 and we’ll respond on the double!
