πŸ§‘β€πŸ’» Summer Community App Challenge

Hi Dash Enthusiasts,

We know people love building Dash apps. We also know people strive to make this world a better place. So we thought, why not combine the two and make an exciting community app-building challenge?!

Plotly would like to challenge the community to build a Dash app that will support people working at animal shelters in understanding their data better and allow for higher rates of animal adoption.

This data set was provided to Kaggle by the Austin Animal Center, the largest no-kill animal shelter in the United States. The data set contains statistics and outcomes of cats entering the Austin Animal Shelter system.

To enter the Community Challenge, please download the dataset, create an app, and share it by replying to this Forum topic. The goal is to raise awareness around the data and predict methods to increase adoption rates. The winners will be highlighted in the next Dash Club Dispatch and will receive a package of this season’s Plotly swag.

Submissions of apps will close on July 17 at midnight.

Thank you all,
Adam

@adamschroeder I’m assuming when you say share it by replying to the forum it should not just be a github repo that needs to be downloaded and ran locally? Do you want this running on a site like pythonanywhere or is it ok if it is not hosted?

hi @johnkangw
The submission should include, at least, open source code of the app on a github repo (or equivalent platform).
It would be cool to have the app live with a link (heroku, pythonanywhere, etc.) that everybody can check out. But that is not mandatory and will not affect the submission process. But if you could add a gif of the app, that would be great.
