Hello, R-Users!

Have you ever joined an hackathon? If so, you surely know how fun and stimulating these events are. If not… now’s your chance!

Quantide is collaborating with Hack the City 2018, the 4th edition of the Southern Switzerland’s hackathon. Aside from being partners, we’re actively part of it: we have members in the mentors’ group and as part of the technical commission of the jury. We also give out a special mention for for the best data science project, developed with open source technology and preferably using R as programming language. It’s the first time that R makes its entry in this hackathon: if you work with R, here’s your chance!

Hack the city is a great occasion to show off your talent and your ideas, in team or as an individual. Programmers, graphic designers, project designers and makers collaborate to build something in just 48 hours. You can also join the competition from your own home, as long as at least one of your teammates is in Lugano! At the end of the hackathon, a jury will give out great prizes to the best project: respectively 5000, 2500 and 100o CHF for first, second and third prizes. There are other special mentions and scholarships, as we have mentioned before.

The last minutes tickets are available now, so if you want to grab this occasion, you should do it fast! Hack the City 2018 will take place in Lugano, from 27th to 29th April. Hope to see you there!
