Join us for the third annual Montreal Baseball Hack Day on March 25th, 2017. Held at the Breather space in the Belgo Building, the Montreal Baseball Hack Day will be joining other baseball fans in Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, and Washington in hosting this one-day event to encourage the development of baseball-related projects, partnerships and experiments and create ties between our technology and sports communities.
The goal of the day is to bring creative 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, website, or data visualization. With a data set that extends back almost 150 years, there is no better sport to challenge the development of unique technical and design-focused internet projects.
Designers, developers, statisticians, and baseball enthusiasts alike are welcome! We are also looking for sponsors to help offset the costs of hosting the 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, but there are limited spots available, so we encourage you to register early.
The full day event will include breakfast, lunch and a bevy of snacks throughout the day. We will end with an award ceremony to present the winning project.
