Bridging the Connectivity Challenge Hackathon

Cybera, in partnership with ISAIC, are hosting a hackathon with the goal of discovering how rural connectivity impacts the quality of life, economic diversification, and education for rural and remote communities in Alberta.

 

Through this four-week online sprint, participants will be able to work in groups, or individually, to solve a real world data challenge. Industry experts will be on-hand to provide an inside look at the issue of rural connectivity and how to be part of the solution. Participants will be provided with data sets, computational tools, and professional development opportunities to help you polish their skills.

 

Over $4,000 in prizes is available for the winner of this month-long hackathon.

 

The Hackathon runs from May 3 to the 30, with registration remaining open until April 30, 2021. Participants must be residents of Alberta and over the age of 18.
