The IBM Db2 Masterclass and Hackathon
Fri October 04, 2019 11:03 AM
Part One: The Masterclass
is a 12-video, 3-section, 1-hour micro-course featuring IBM Db2 solutions for applications utilizing machine learning, web applications and blockchain. In this video series,
IBM instructor, Vin Agrawal,
teaches students in focused video bites need-to-know information for on-boarding and context, then introduces some applied demos for further comprehension. It is entirely free and is meant to be done while simultaneously putting the courses to practice - coding through a lite account provided for free by IBM. The content is targeted at developers new to the community and is perfect for those familiar with Python and/or Node.js. Existing IDUG or Db2 users are always welcome to participate, as some of the techniques shared may be new to them as well, such as the blockchain course.
Part Two: The Hackathon
Students will be invited to an online "science fair" style hackathon competition
happening October 11th-13th, where participants create use case projects (or migrate real-world use cases they are familiar with to Db2) and showcase them on a project page through the hackathon platform, open to members on October 6th.
The prize pool total is $15,000, and the winners will be announced at the
IDUG 2019 EMEA Conference
in Rotterdam on October 22nd.
Participants can publish projects alone, as teams, or with their startups.
