Introduction, Welcome, and AgendaCome in, get settled, make some friends, and learn about the day to come.
Sponsor TalksGet started with a word from our sponsors. You will learn about their "big data" tools, products and services and how you'll be able to use them during the Hackathon.
Idea PitchesIf you would like to lead or to be part of a team at the hackathon, come prepared with a brief (2 minute maximum) pitch for your concept. Feel free to propose a "boil the ocean" project, but make sure that you can have something up and running to demonstrate by the evening.
Team FormationNow that you've made a pitch of your own and have heard the other pitches, it is time to form into teams for the day.
Hack TimePlan to spend most of your day hacking - making a plan, designing an architecture, writing the code, and putting a good demo together.
We’ll have lunch and some snacks along the way.
