Over a weekend develop a solution using the tools you have learned at the Toronto Social, Mobile, Analytics and Cloud meetup and BigDataUniversity.com

This challenge is about acquiring skills that can help you advance in your careers, startups, or work. It's about learning hands-on IBM analytic tools.  We hope you participate just for the joy of it, but we will provide a small cash prize as an incentive.

The workshop on Thursday evening should get you started with the tools that are needed to develop your application.
