Second Streamline Hackathon in Leipzig

Preceding the 4th Joint International BBDC and ScaDS Summer School for Big Data we will held a big data hackathon from June 30th - July 1st at the University of Leipzig. 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).

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.
