The Event

Are you a developer or passionate about Data mining, machine learning and NLP? Then, join the DTSE CZ Hackathon!  
This competition is also a networking event to connect and engage people around with a common purpose. Students and Graduates will have the chance to exchange with our Managing Director and professionals, already working in this field of technology.

Over the weekend, participants will be organized into teams of 2-3 participants, get closer to the technological requirements, and show their skills by completing 3 different challenges and designing the future!

Challenge 1 - Text Classifier: Build an NLP learner model that is able to classify MS Word documents based on their contents such as meeting minutes, technical design or change requests.
Challenge 2 - Natural Language Processing and Data Mining: Build a ranking of the most used, custom-built SAP programs that are documented in the Technical Designs.
Challenge 3 - Credit Forecast: Predict the impact of lowering the rejection rate for mobile customers on the amount of fraud for the EU national companies.

Besides the tasks and competition, you will learn first-hand how our data scientists at DTSE work, how they feel, what they tackle every day and what’s our motivation for a career at DTSE. 

The Hackathon is taking place at Deutsche Telekom Services Europe office, in Holandská 859/3, 639 00, Brno, Czech Republic.

The DTSE Hackathon is not only a competition in Machine Learning and Text Mining but also an opportunity for networking, connecting and engaging people with common purpose. We want to create an environment of learning and exchange with our Managing Director and professionals, already working in this field of technology. Eventually it's an opportunity to be offered and paid internship or full-time job within our Data Analytics team and win interesting prizes.

DTSE Hackathon is open to anyone with a driven mind and likes to encode. Preferably anyone who has knowledge in Machine Learning and Text Mining and wants to learn from experienced mentors.

You can register whether you have a team or not. If you have a team, all members should register individually. Teams should have 2-3 members.

Don’t worry! We will start the Hackathon by setting up the teams. Participants who stay without teams will be eventually mixed and grouped in teams of 3 participants maximum.

  • 1st prize: €1500 + visit to T-gallery in Bonn, Germany + 50% off T-Mobile vouchers
  • 2nd prize : €1000 + 50% off T-Mobilevouchers
  • 3rd prize : €500 + 50% off TMCZ vouchers
  • Additionally we offer paid job / internship for selected participants

Aside from your passion, you should bring your ID, your own laptop, chargers, phone and any device that you think would be helpful in coding.

Food, coffee and other soft drinks will be served throughout the day. 

Our offices will be open to use like following:

  • Friday 17 May 2019: from 15:00 until 20:00
  • Saturday 18 May 2019: from 9:00 until 20:00

The Hackathon will officially start on Friday 17th of May 2019 at 15:00.

Before the introductions you will have the opportunity to meet other participants and create your team. The coding will then start. The office will close at 20:00 and the participants will be back on Saturday morning to continue hacking.

At the end of the Hackathon, each team will have the time to prepare and present their results.  The first 3 winning teams will then receive their awards. In addition, we will select participants who will be offered a paid internship or a job position within our Data Analytics team.
