The DTSE CZ Hackathon

Do you know what happened over the weekend 17 - 19th of May? We hosted the first-ever DTSE Hackathon!

The event was the right place for developers and passionate about data mining, machine learning and Natural Language Processing. Over the weekend, participants, organized into teams of 3-4 participants, showed their skills by completing 3 different challenges.  

Along with that, we organized various networking events to connect people. Participants had the chance to exchange with our Managing Director and professionals, already working in this field. They could learn first-hand how data scientists at Deutsche Telekom Services Europe work, how they feel, and what they tackle every day. We created an environment of learning, open mindedness, experience sharing with Deutsche Telekom experts and leaders who are passionate about innovation and technology,         

The Hackathon eventually attracted participants with diverse national (Indian, Scottish, Greek, Czech, Slovakian) and professional (IT security, AI, natural language processing, SW development) backgrounds. 

The winning team was rewarded an all-inclusive visit to Deutsche Telekom Design Gallery in Bonn, T-Mobile CZ discount vouchers and cash prizes.                                                              

To sum up, the Hackathon was another great step in becoming the center of innovation for DTSE!
