Four Reasons LeagueApps Is Excited For Our Holiday Hackathon

dedicated hosting reviews

Nothing says Happy Holidays like a good old fashioned hackathon! At least, that’s what the LeagueApps development team is saying.

Next week, the LeagueApps team will be participating in their annual hackathon. These events have been valued as a source of creativity, innovation, and collaboration.

To get a sense of a LeagueApps hackathon, watch the above video to see our summer “LeagueAppathon” in 2014.

The core concept of a hackathon resides in the root word “hack,” which essentially means a clever solution to a tricky problem. Here’s the easiest explanation of a hackathon that we found from the people at SendGrid.

At LeagueApps, these projects we tackle during hackathons can be an engineering challenge like processing data at scale, an innovative product idea that makes sports organizing even easier, or a crammed brainstorm session that tackles what websites will look like in the future.

But no matter what the project, the spirit of hackathons remains the same – try something new and walk away having learned a valuable lesson, even if you didn’t accomplish your goal.

With that in mind, here are four reasons why this year’s holiday hackathon will make LeagueApps a better company.

We Will Learn Something

Athletes have tournaments. Developers have hackathons. No matter what happens, we will learn something.

“This is a great way to solve a problem or research new technologies,” Director of Product Management Gautam Chowdhry said.

Teamwork On A Grand Scale

From the development team in the DC office to the Union Square headquarters in NYC, everyone will have a role to fill that will make LeagueApps a better company for our partners. That includes brainstorming tasks for mobile apps and WordPress widgets, to writing personal holiday cards to our partners.

“I’m pretty excited to share my holiday limerick with our partners,” Senior Launch Coach Emily Mumford exclaimed.

It’ll Be Fun, But Competitive

In honor of the development team hitting their 2016 goals by creating great features and products every four weeks, they’ll be pitted against each other in a project battle royale.

The dev team will be split into three teams. Each team will have a SportsDog theme to their team goals and names.

Team Openness will brainstorm around optimizing WordPress widgets with our open API so sports organizers can deliver even juicier content to their members. The Results Squad will be in charge of developing a high-level scoreboard for the company that displays live metrics- a sort of running scoreboard. Our Students of the Game team will research and lay the groundwork for mobile apps.
