Baseball Hack Day is an annual on-site, in-person hacking event (also known as hackathon, hack fest, code fest, or code party) where area baseball fans come together and create baseball-related projects to compete in a fun, friendly, one-day competition. Come with your laptop computer and your ideas or open mind!
Born in Boston spring of 2012, Baseball Hack Day is a grass-roots, open-sourced movement, held at the same day at different locations all around the world. The goal of the day is to bring creative tech minds into one room, and see what they can produce within a limited time. The project could be (but is not limited to) a tool, simple web app, mobile app, web site, or data visualization.
This event is based on the principal of the original the Hack Day Manifesto and will always be free to attend, thanks to our generous sponsors. We are run by volunteers, pro bono, labor for love, and we are not-for-profit. We follow Hack Code of Conduct.
