Traditional in-person hackathons gather coders for a few days. But the SAS Hackathon? It’s different.

We believe ideas need to be nurtured. Participants collaborate online for a month, enhancing their data science skills under the guidance of a SAS mentor with industry expertise. The SAS Hackathon isn’t a one-time event – it’s a sprint within a marathon that spans several months.
