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


Please, use the following API docs:

1. https://www.bigml.com/

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