Running Data Hackathons with DataCamp Workspace


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!

This session is targeted to student clubs whose members are recipients of DataCamp Donates and DataCamp Classrooms scholarships.
