About this Event
Tech@Católica is proud to host a Hackathon on 4th of April from 9:00 to 20:00 (Lisbon Time) in partnership with Thorly and the support of the Center for Technological Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CTIE).
The day will consist of understanding the basics of Python and then cracking the code to figure out the challenge of researching a well known dataset, whilst learning more about the disease – COVID19 – its causes, how it develops, and how to avoid it!
After participating in this event, terms like machine learning or predictive analytics will no longer be just buzzwords for you.
What is the Ticket Policy?
1- There is only a limited amount of tickets that will be given on a first come first serve basis. The ticket will work as a deposit that will be fully refunded (except the platform service fee) upon your check-in at the event.
2- You can use your PayPal account or a debit/credit card.
Note: The Paypal checkout will ask you to either log in, or create an account. If you proceed to the payment with that option, you will have the opportunity to pay as a Paypal guest, without the need to create an account.
3- No cash will be accepted.
4- The ticket sales will close on the 2nd of April, at the end of the day.
Do I need coding skills?
NO! You can participate without any coding skills. We will give you a simple workshop where you will learn some experience in Data Science, plus every group will be partnered with a mentor who will guide you and your peers through the challenge.
Can I sign up with friends?
Yes! The hackathon will have groups of four, so if you want to sign up with friends let us know you are enrolling together. The day before the event all the teams will be created and assigned to each person.
