The challenge involves a number of InfluxData-related activities so that participants can learn or show off their existing skills in InfluxDB Cloud:
- Each challenge task will be worth a set number of points.
- To score points, participants will upload screenshots of their progress to the challenge’s Slack channel.
- InfluxData team members might even drop hints or helpful links in the contest channel.
- Keep in mind that our judges can award additional style points for creativity.
On Monday, May 17, everyone registered for InfluxDays EMEA (register for free here) will get an email with the full contest rules. This page will also be updated when the contest officially opens at 8 am BST on May 17.
Competitors have until Wednesday, May 19 at 9 AM BST to complete their submissions and post their final screenshots. Points will be tabulated, and contest winners will be recognized during InfluxDays on May 19 during the closing sessions.
