Even if you have never participated in a hackathon or even think that hackathons are not for you…now is your time to learn that hackathons are a great way to test your entrepreneurial spirit; collaborate with data scientists and other technologists.
Hack4Space a global virtual hackathon
Build your skills and help make a difference
Strut your non-technical skills like product management, project management, marketing, and business leadership to solve wicked problems in a practical way that also make the world a better place. IBM Z and the DePaul Center for Data Science bring to you Hack4Space, a hackathon geared toward leveraging space data to solve a problem your team identifies using space data. We will provide training, systems access, and help you identify a team if you haven’t established one before the deadline. Expect to learn more about Design Thinking, a free cloud solution from IBM Z that’s open to all students from across the globe, data science, space technology, and pitching like a pro in a half-day virtual training (also free). Expect to leave inspired by your fellow classmates and experts from IBM focused on startup acceleration, space technology, data science, cloud computing, and much more.
