Combine your love of code, design, big data, and baseball at the FIRST annual Baseball Hackday in Toronto! This special one day The event will take place on March 17th, 2018 at the Think Research building and we will be hacking along with teams in Boston, Montreal, Chicago, and San Diego. We will all participate in the development of baseball-related projects and experiments to see if can make something awesome with technology. By participating, you will be part of a group that joins technology with sports and our hope is to bring technology and sports communities together.
Using your creativity along with baseball, you can make, a web app, a mobile app, a web site, or data visualization. The majority of your coding must happen during the event. Some work done prior to the event is allowed, but it should be disclosed at your demo. Prototypes/mockups for demo are OK, but working websites or mobile apps are strongly encouraged. And afterwards, you'll get the opportunity to show your stuff to judges from the Blue Jays organization (and more)!
Designers, developers, statisticians, big data enthusiasts, and baseball fans are welcome to participate! We are looking for sponsors to help offset the costs of hosting our event and judges to evaluate the projects and then present the winning team with a grand prize. There is no cost to attend and participate in the event but there are limited spots so book early.
There will be breakfast, lunch, and snacks throughout the day. The day will end with an award ceremony for the winning projects.
