Deloitte Hackathon

Geek out and capture the flag

7 - 8 April 2017

We're getting competitive: join Deloitte's Hackathon in a hip creative hub located in Zurich and demonstrate how tech-savvy you are. There will be three different challenges around cyber security, manipulating and analysing data. Capture the flag and hack the Green Dot!

Analytics Challenge (in co-operation with Opendata)

In the Analytics Challenge, you will support the world’s biggest effort to vaccinate children: Imagine yourself as an analytics consultant working for a Swiss NGO. We will ask you and your team to extract insights from a data set covering vaccinations all over the world. Navigate your way through messy data, build predictive models, and wow us with fancy visualisations. Finally, present to us your team’s results. Your recommendations will help the NGO send vaccines to where they’re needed most – and will ultimately save lives.
