The Fourth Year in a Row !

The whole team is thrilled to announce that there will be a Data Challenge next year ! Through this challenge, we aim to arouse the interest of our community for data science but also to create a community that shares the same passion. In addition, we also make it a point of honor that our challenge stays accessible to everyone, both beginners who build their first model as well as more advanced. From this perspective, all the participants will again have access to a free DataCamp account in order to start with the basics, for the beginners, or to acquire additional knowledge for the most advanced of you.

A tremendous 19-20 edition on the making !

Thank you all, you came up huge this year ! The Solvay Digital Society is proud to announce that nearly 250 students enrolled in the challenge. The schedule is now rolling and the inscriptions are closed. If you missed it, we will be thrilled to welcome you next year !

Frequently Asked Questions

I should not come to the Recruiting Event if I am not sure to participate in the challenge.

This is wrong. The Recruiting Event creates no obligation ! It is only an informative session in order to give you more details about the whole schedule, the scope and other practical info. At the end of it, we will submit to you the registration form that you have to complete if you want to be officially registered for the Data Challenge.

Do I have to be a master developer to attend this challenge ?

Of course not ! The competition is open to anyone, from the beginners to the most advanced of you. Every participant will have access to a free DataCamp account, allowing him to acquire great skills before the challenge by watching small videos and completing exercises. Doing so, we ensure that anyone can fill the gap and catch up with a bit of motivation. The 3 most active of you (i.e. those achieving the most and with the most XP on DataCamp) will even be rewarded with a great prize !During the first semester, we have also set up workshops especially for you to give you the opportunity to train yourself in the challenge’s topic. Conclusion : it is all about motivation !
