is an opportunity to leverage NBA statistics and to showcase programming,
visualization and data skills in front of many distinguished judges as well
as NBA team and league office hiring managers. Below is some additional
information and background regarding the event.
On September 22nd, 2018, students, statisticians, developers and engineers

the greater NY/NJ area. The 2018 NBA Hackathon will feature two tracks,
basketball analytics and business analytics. Teams accepted to the Hackathon
will build tools to solve important and challenging problems in the NBA.
Their work will be presented to a panel 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.
