On September 23rd and 24th, 2017, student statisticians, developers and engineers will take part in the second annual NBA Hackathon. This year’s Hackathon will feature two tracks, basketball analytics and business analytics. Teams accepted to the Hackathon will work for 24 hours building tools to solve challenging and important problems in the NBA. Their work will be presented to panels of expert judges and an audience of NBA personnel, media, invited guests, and the other competitors. Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams of each track, with a grand prize that will include lunch with NBA commissioner, Adam Silver, and a trip to NBA All-Star 2018 in Los Angeles.
Note: the NBA Hackathon is open only to undergraduate and graduate students studying at accredited universities in the United States or Canada (excluding Quebec).
