About the PUG Hackathon:
The "Power BI User Group Global Hackathon" will provide our worldwide Power BI community with a fun and competitive opportunity to use the Power BI platform for creatively expressing public data in a meaningful way. The goal is to create Power BI apps that entertain, educate, and inspire people to facilitate positive change through the data stories that are visualized. A hackathon not only demonstrates the capabilities of Power BI but highlights and gives exposure to the users authoring these use case scenarios.
Starting with local-level PUG hackathon competitions, winners will be chosen by their local PUG community members. These hackathon winners then progress to a global competition, to be judged by the larger global PowerBI UG community and judging committee. Ultimately, the world-champion team will be crowned.
