Hackathon: Develop/MapReduce Your Dream Predictive Analytics/BigData App.

Our goal is to implement a few apps, using publicly available APIs. You can propose apps, code them, or just be an observer. PHP, Java, Python, Ruby, C++, FORTRAN, or COBOL (just kidding!) are all welcome!

If you want to code, please go through the APIs below.


Step 1: Get to know each other

Step 2: Get to know proposed applications

Step 3: Divide into groups of 3-4 to finish the apps

Step 4: Discussion about how to finish the rest


List of a few APIs:

1. https://www.bigml.com/

2. https://cloud.google.com/products/more-products

3. http://bostonpredictiveanalytics.com/bigdatacloudapi.htm

    If anyone's looking to add talent to their startup team check out DapperJobs (https://www.dapperjobs.com/). You can post a job for free using "web2" as a code.

    We know that for small teams, finding someone you actually want to work with is important. Unlike normal job boards, we're focused on the culture/personality side of things.

    If you have any questions or feedback, I'd love to hear how we can improve our product!

    Is a common data set going to be used by all groups? Can you send out a link?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
