Running Data Hackathons with DataCamp WorkspaceKey Takeaways:
- How Workspace solves the common pitfalls of running data hackathons.
- How to run a data hackathon from the ground up with DataCamp Workspace, from start to finish.
- How to create an engaging and challenging hackathon that promotes learning and collaboration among members of their club.
Data hackathons where participants work individually or in teams to solve an exciting data challenge are a great way for people to practice their data science skills in a real-world setting.
But setting up the right packages and datasets and sharing the solution can be challenging and time-consuming. With DataCamp Workspace, DataCamp’s modern data science notebook, running hackathons is a breeze.
After an introduction to Workspace, the webinar will cover all key steps involved in organizing hackathons using DataCamp Workspace: picking a dataset, defining the business question, organizing teams, providing feedback, and grading.
We’ll also introduce several new hackathon templates to make it super-easy to get you started on organizing your own hackathon!
