First Streamline Hackathon in Munich  

Preceding the 3rd Joint International BBDC and ScaDS Summer School for Big Data, we hold a Big Data hackathon from August 19th-20th in Munich. The hackathon aim is to attract a diverse crowd of people from around the world from academia and companies and in particular computer science master students. The participants learn in the two days hackathon about building complex real-time data analytics pipelines based on open-source cluster-computing frameworks (i.e., Apache Flink and Apache Spark). The hackathon attendance is free and food and drinks will be provided.

In the open coding session, the participants implement their ideas using the frameworks. The participants will get a short introduction and sample programs in the frameworks. The challenge to solve is to pick one or more real-time data sources, either provided by the samples or self chosen and optionally historical data sources and build real-time analytics, which improve strategic planning or decision making.

We will give prizes to the groups with best ideas, implementations, and demonstrations!
