Are you a baseball fanatic or techie looking for an opportunity to demonstrate your skills? Then you are in for a real treat as Baseball Hack Day (BHD) gears up for their 7th year! On Saturday March 9th, multiple cities throughout the United States and Canada will host a 1 day hackathon to open up the baseball season. This year’s event takes place simultaneously in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle, Toronto, Cincinnati, New York, Twin Cities, DC, and here in San Diego. It’s a day where creative minds come together and see what cool projects can be created within a limited time.The project could be (but is not limited to) a tool, simple web app, mobile app, website, or data visualization. There is no cost to attend and participate in the event, but there are limited spots available, so we encourage you to book early!
The event will be hosted by Intuit at their beautiful San Diego Offices.
The full-day phenomenon will include breakfast, lunch and a bevy of snacks. We will also end with an award ceremony to present the winning project.
Designers, developers, statisticians, marketers, and baseball enthusiasts alike are welcome!
