"An amazing event! Well organised, highly motivated people, masterclasses were very educational. Some organisations would charge a lot for this! Superlative service to the community"£0
"An eye-opening event showcasing what can be achieved when a diversity of skills is applied to a focused problem...without any time to procrastinate"
Location: Virtual Environment (Microsoft Teams)
Rules & Good Practice:
Be nice, work collegiately, help each other. We’ve all given up a weekend to be here.
All teams retain ownership of whatever they have created during the Hackathon. You can choose to make your code available as open source to provide a way for other people sharing your vision to contribute to your project, however choosing to do so is entirely up to you.
Hackathons are like marathons. Some people go to compete but most people take part to better themselves and have fun. Whatever the reason is you're at a hackathon, make sure you're upholding the hacker spirit by collaborating with other teams, helping beginners, and having fun.
No discrimination, harassment, bullying or anything else that may impact your co-hackers.
Submission Deadline:Sunday 6pm GMT. Please Ensure your presentation video, code and data are all in a zip file when submitted
Hack 8 - 1st Place

1st place went to team 5a, a challenge set by Gleeds to create a tool that allows us to track the price trends of key materials such as steel, concrete, copper and currency fluctuations.
Through their output, a webscraping tool was created to scrape prices of the key materials which was connected to a power bi dashboard to visualise price trends over time by an SQL database.Hack 8 - 2nd Place

2nd place went to challenge 9a, leveraging the data from the Highways England A14 project to conduct analytics on schedule performance. Thanks to nPlan for their support on this.
Can we track changes to a programme over time, looking at tasks over time to understand how certain types of activity have changed from the original plan to the present day, or forecast how they might change in the future?Hack 8 - 3rd Place

Can we create a tool that allows us to track the price trends of key materials such as steel, concrete, copper and currency fluctuations?
A webscraping tool to scrape prices of key materials including steel, concrete and copper as well as currency fluctuations. A dashboard to display these prices, price trends over time and key analytics. A plan to deploy this solution into a production environment.
eradicate the manual task of extracting this information. create a more standardised way of capturing and storing this data. allow us to conduct more trend analysis into prices and inflation of materials.Project Hack 7 NOVEMBER 7/8th
