Teams, prizes… data. This 3-hour mini-hackathon will give you a chance to deep dive into a public dataset and work with a team to answer a series of questions that will be published on data.world after the event.
ProductHunt.com is a collection of product postings on which visitors can comment and upvote. Companies (or small teams, or even individuals) can post their products on ProductHunt in an effort to disseminate it to ProductHunt’s large audience.
This mini-hackathon will tackle a dataset of ProductHunt postings in an effort to discover which types of products tend to perform well, and possibly discover why!
