Sparkathon deadline extended by 2 weeks

Happy new year, data wranglers! We’re kicking off 2016 with some good news: you’ve got two additional weeks to work on your Sparkathon submission. The new deadline for submitting a project is February 3, 2016.

In addition to being naturally generous, we thought it would be fair to extend the deadline given that many of you had trouble gaining access to Analytics for Apache Spark on Bluemix during the first few weeks of the submission period. We’re hoping this additional time will allow you to see your projects through to completion in the way you’d like.

You can see the full updated schedule here.


We're here to help. If you have any questions about the hackathon, post on the discussion forum or email and we'll respond as soon as we can.
