The Data Pipeline Championship is an event in August 2021 bringing together hundreds of data engineers from around the world to compete for $10,000 in prizes.

Participants are challenged to create the most interesting datasets and data pipelines using publicly available datasets, our API partners, and the Xplenty platform.

Want to create a dataset that includes the love calculations for Chuck Norris and all of the characters from Star Wars? This is the competition for you.

At the end of the competition, the community will vote on submissions, and finalists will be judged by our panel of senior data engineers from multiple companies. Do you have what it takes?

For those who are new to Xplenty, we’ll provide training in the week leading up to the competition on our platform works. Then, on the opening day of the event, you'll be given access to Xplenty and all of our proprietary API partners. 

Over the course of the event, you’ll be invited to create the most interesting dataset or data pipeline using Xplenty and our data partners. To submit your project, you’ll be asked to record a quick video of what you did, why it’s interesting, and how you used the Xplenty platform to build your pipelines. 

The community will then review submissions and vote on who created the most interesting dataset or data pipeline, narrowing the field to 5 finalists in each category (dataset and pipeline). At that point, our judge panel of independent senior data engineers will review all finalists and pick the winners. 

Interested in testing your mettle? Sign up today.
