What is the Data Geek Challenge?
The Data Geek Challenge is a movement by the data community to discover and tell the most compelling stories using data. New data visualization technologies allow us to uncover value from our data and discover new meaning. The Data Geek Challenge urges us to demonstrate how we can turn data into meaningful insight that allows us to take action and that will ultimately lead to change however big or small.
Who can participate?
The Data Geek Challenge is open to anyone, including SAP employees, partners, customers, and students.
What you can win?
Each data geek entry will receive the limited edition Data Geek 2.0 Rise of Dark Data tshirt (while supplies last). Additional prizes are planned for upcoming events like SAP TechEd and the SAP BusinessObjects user conference as well as special tweets-aways for Data Geek Challenges, follow @SAPLumira on Twitter for details.
Is there an ultimate winner or something?
Lumira is looking for a team of Data Geek super heroes, learn more about the Geek Squad and the 5 categories of Data Geek entry winners.
When does the challenge end?
The Data Geek Challenge will run until December 2013 so you have lots of time to enter but keep in mind there are a limited number of Data Geek 2.0 t-shirts.
How many times can you enter?
As many times you like, more than one data geek entry is encouraged, but only one t-shirt per person.
