For the first time ever on September 24, 2016, “student” statisticians, developers and engineers will take part in the NBA Basketball Analytics Hackathon. Teams accepted to the Hackathon will build basketball analytics tools and develop solutions to challenging and important problems in the field of basketball analytics, and present their work to a panel of expert judges and an audience of NBA League Office and team personnel, media, invited guests and the other competitors. Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams, including a tour of the NBA League Office and a lunch with NBA staff. The event will provide an unparalleled platform for the competitors to display their talent in front of key decision makers in the field.

Note: the NBA Basketball Analytics Hackathon is open only to undergraduate and graduate students studying at accredited universities in the United States. While I highly hope that new initiatives as such jump on over into Europe and the Euroleague take this kind of stance as well. I hope that next year the event can be much more global.
