And as part of the GDG-Hildesheim, you're among the first to know about this!!

The Community Speedrun Challenge is a training program that will run in May where you’ll have the opportunity to join four Speedruns and get hands-on experience with Machine Learning on Google Cloud and Tensorflow, and take your first steps with tools like BigQuery, Cloud Speech API, and Cloud ML Engine. Every Speedrun is open for a week to give you the ability to finish all labs in your best time, scoring more points and winning prizes.

This challenge is for those who want to gain hands on experience with Google cloud and Machine learning.
