Summer is finally here and so are the long form virtual hackathons. Unlike a traditional hackathon, which focus on what you can build in one place in one limited time span, virtual hackathons typically give you a month or more to work from where ever you like.
And for those of us who love data, we are not left behind. There are a number of data science competitions to choose from this summer. Whether it’s a new Kaggle challenge (which are posted year round) or the data science component of Challenge Post’s Summer Jam Series, there are plenty of opportunities to spend the summer either sharpening or showing off your skills.
The Landscape: Which Competitions are Which?
Kaggle competitions have corporate sponsors that are looking for specific business questions answered with their sample data. In return, winners are rewarded handsomely, but you have to win first.
