Can you escape Dataiku? Join the online escape room experience, and team up with fellow data practitioners to try and solve an immersive data challenge on Dataiku!
What It Is
In this collaborative data challenge, you will work in teams to prepare, enrich, analyze, and draw insights from retail sales data for a limited amount of time. Hence it's recommended to have already used Dataiku firsthand!
The first team who answers all questions correctly will win a special prize.
When & Where
The online escape room event will be hosted virtually on Zoom, via the link after registration, as part of the Everyday AI Bengaluru online conference.
How It Works
Before the Event
Once you sign up for the event, you will receive an email with a link which allows you to access a dedicated Dataiku Online plan, where you will be able to benefit from all the features necessary for solving the challenge.
You can then follow the instructions in the email to import the Dataiku Escape Room project into your Dataiku Online instance. In the Wiki of the project, you will find all the detailed information and instructions that you will need to solve the escape room.
We invite you to take a look at the instructions and the input data beforehand, but in order to keep things interesting, we recommend waiting until the live event to start working with your teammates on the challenge itself.
During the Event
On the day of the event, you will join a conference call via the Zoom link provided in the email, and after a brief introduction, you will be split into a breakout room along with your team.
Normally, each of you should already have access to the escape room project in their dedicated Dataiku Online instance, but to make the experience more collaborative, we recommend that one member of the team collects the other members' email addresses and shares their Dataiku Online space with them, so you can work together on the same instance.
Throughout the event, you will be accompanied by several game facilitators, who will circulate the breakout rooms and will be available to clarify the rules and the process or answer any questions. There will also be a dedicated tech facilitator who can provide technical support, as well as help and hints on the challenge itself, in case you encounter any issues or are stuck.
You will prepare and analyze the data in the project in order to compute the answers you need, and then use the webapp in the project to enter the answers and check if they are correct.
Once you have answered all questions correctly, the webapp will reveal a "code word", which you will need to immediately share in the chat of the Zoom call. If you are the first team to find and share the code word, a facilitator will check to make sure you have indeed answered the questions correctly and not just guessed the word, and will then declare you the winner.
