Unearthed Sydney This Weekend
100 participants are ready to take part in our sixth Hackathon event for 2016, Unearthed Sydney, solving challenges and analysing big data sets from global mining and resource companies.
This event is shaping up to be one of our biggest and here's a few reasons why...
Over 100 participants are registered for our only big data themed Hackathon for 2016. The data sets are huge and the opportunities for participants presented by those companies involved is even bigger!
This is the first time South32 will join the Unearthed community by entering one challenge from its Worsley Alumina refinery. View the challenge here.
This will be the third Unearthed Hackathon that Newcrest has been involved in. There will be two big data challenges from Newcrest. View these challenges here.
Unearthed Sydney and Hunter Valley are part of our wider efforts to connect entrepreneurs and innovators from around the world to resource industry challenges. Educating both industry & startups on how they can collaborate. Unearthed San Francisco is next!
