Build Something Cool!Hacking is about satisfying an inquisitive streak and building something for fun and exploration. So our challenge for this hackathon is simple: make sense of one of the world's largest datasets!
The GDELT Project monitors the world's broadcast, print, and web news from nearly every corner of every country in over 100 languages and identifies the people, locations, organizations, themes, sources, emotions, counts, quotes, images and events driving our global society every second of every day.
As long as your project uses MongoDB in some way, you'll be eligible for prizes. Projects will be judged on three simple criteria: Is it creative, is it well designed, and is it well made? So feel free to take your projects in exciting directions and take this opportunity to satisfy your inquisitive mind!
Work together, work alone, work at home, work remotely. Wherever you work, have fun!
