Submit code solutions that solve data science problems using Juju, the service orchestration tool from Ubuntu, to wrap an application into a self-contained, reusable charm bundle. Do something interesting and win 10K.



UbuntuUbuntu, a Linux-based operating system for the cloud is sponsoring a Data Science competition as part of its Charm Championship.

Do something interesting in the data science field and you can win $10k USD in the process.

Charm Championship is a competition in which contestants use Juju, the service orchestration tool from Ubuntu, to wrap an application into a self-contained, reusable charm bundle - essentially a blueprint for how the services in an environment should connect together.

In each category, Ubuntu looking for a charm bundle that really innovates, bringing simplicity and speed to an otherwise complex task. A high quality bundle will reflect best practices of services that run in production and solve "infrastructure gunk" and solve real world problems. The great thing about a charm bundle is that it can then be shared with the community and re-used anywhere, by anyone. That means the smallest start-up can benefit from the same easy deployment as the biggest companies. It's out-of-the-box infrastructure deployment.
