Overview:

Project:Hack 3.0 was a huge success and we are hoping to top this with our next hackathon on 12th & 13th October 2019. Book now for Project:Hack4!

Project:Hack 3.0

 We had some great feedback from Project:Hack3.0. We were proud to hear that 100% of attendees said they would recommend it to their colleagues and 100% of the challenges and masterclasses being rated as good or excellent!

“I am blown away by what can be achieved in such a short space of time. A totally inspiring and collaborative experience leading to out of the box thinking and unique solutions”. 

You can see further information about the challenges including blogs, presentations and videos, plus the masterclasses and more here

Project:Hack4

Only around 50% of projects are completed on time and slightly more are delivered within the original budget. This situation has hardly changed in nearly a decade. It is a challenge which is ideally suited to advanced data analytics methods and we would be delighted if you could join us to help shape a new future. A future that has the potential to save society hundreds of billions and transform how projects are managed. Although data analytics are gaining traction across the board, the project management profession is a relatively late adopter and you have an opportunity to change it.

Join us for Project:Hack4 for an inspirational weekend and help us to exploit the full potential of advanced data analytics to transform project delivery in the construction industry.

The Event:

When: 09:00-16:00 on 12th-13th October (a drinks reception will take place on the Saturday evening)

Where: Microsoft Reactor, London. Breakfast and lunch will be provided

How many: Capacity for 100 people

Teams: Teams of around 6 people will form before and during the event.

Skills: We’ll need a mix of business analysis, professional project delivery experience and data science/analytics skills (from python, PowerBI/visualisation, graph databases through to machine learning)

Format: We’ll start the day by introducing the challenges and the data sets. You’ll then have the opportunity to pitch your idea to the crowd to invite team members, or join a team whose idea you want to work on. You’ll then spend two days developing the concepts, interrogating the data, building proof of concepts and delivering a solid pitch to support it. Finally, you’ll get the opportunity to present to industry experts who will judge your proposal. Not only will you have the kudos associated with shaping the future of project management, but we also some amazing prizes to award.

There will be on-ground support. Data scientists, PowerBI experts and subject matter experts will help you with technical queries and mentors will guide you towards the perfect pitch.

It promises to be a great couple of days will be had with food, drinks, ideas and bucket loads of fun. The only requirement is to come with a lot of bright ideas and enthusiasm!

Please note spaces are limited, so please only book if you fully intend to be there. This is a community based project, heavily reliant on sponsors and no-shows can significantly impact the success of the event. 

Proceeds from ticket sales go to Cancer Research UK.

Coming soon – Further information on challenges and masterclasses!

Special thanks to our sponsors
