Data Science is rapidly growing in popularity both in companies and in academia. So what exactly is Data Science and how does Codio take Data Science out of the realm of the weird and wonderful and help students get their hands dirty?
Recently I was fortunate enough to attend BCUHack on behalf of the Codio team. Codio was one of the headline sponsors for Birmingham City University's first hackathon. The "leap year" themed hackathon kicked off on Monday 29 February and ended 24 hours later on the 1 March.
Codio is the perfect platform to host your next hackathon, whether it is a small University hack or a global gathering. This guide will show you how to use Codio's versatile organisation and class management tools to setup your hackathon in a few minutes.
This post is part of series which will show you how to create your own online course using Codio. This first post will cover the basics of adding content with Markdown, configuring page layouts and how to run code directly from a guide page allowing you to create powerful interactive learning material.
