Hack Day @ HP Big Data Conference Next Week



Hack Day @ HP Big Data Conference 2015 is next week on August 10th! Conference registrants have the chance to participate in an 8-hour-long prototyping sprint. Will you be joining us in Boston? Register now here.


You have only 8 hours to complete a working app, so read this blog to find out what you can do to prepare ahead of time and hack your way to win.


First, take a look at Getting Started with HP IDOL OnDemand. Second, now that we’ve sparked your interest, you’re asking how can you use this in an application?  You’re in luck… our very own expert technologist, Nigel Wright has knocked up a sample application (using Node.JS, and Express).


This app will query Twitter for a search term, return the first 20 results matching and pass them through the HP IDOL OnDemand sentiment analysis engine. This will attach a 'positive', 'negative' or 'neutral' sentiment to the tweet. Finally, we’ll walk you through how we can deploy this application to the HP Helion Developer Platform. Wait, what's the HP Helion Development Platform?! Don’t worry, we’ll dive into that too.
