Speedy data analysis

Consist's hackathon

Consist's popular Big Data Hackathon offers students and other interested parties the chance to collect and analyze data from a virtual car race in real time on May 8, 2023. This time the event is simultaneously part of the interdisciplinary weeks by the FH Kiel and the Digital Week Kiel.

Kiel – Consist's Big Data Hackathon will be taking place on May 8, 2023, from 4pm to 10pm at the Seeburg (Düsternbrooker Weg 2, 24105 Kiel). This year the popular event, which is traditionally embedded in the interdisciplinary weeks by the FH Kiel, is also part of the program for the Digital Week Kiel. Consist has been supporting this major digital festival in the north as a friends sponsor for many years.

The hackathon is primarily aimed at students or other interested parties who are passionate about data analytics and Big Data. Participants will generate their own data on site with a quick round on the console. Extensively provided telemetry will make it possible to collect several parameters of a racing car while driving in Forza Horizon 5 in real time and evaluate them afterwards with the help of Splunk, a platform for central log management, monitoring and reporting which is based on Big Data tech-nology. Through searches, statistics and reports, it will be possible to analyze race events in Splunk in many ways and answer exciting questions. Splunk experts from Consist will be supervising and supporting the participants. Interested parties can sign up here.
