What you need to know before registering


  • The SAS Hackathon is for developers, students, startup businesses, SAS customers and technology partners.

  • Teams can comprise people within your organization, your organization and a technology partner, or individuals looking to join a group.
  • Technology partners can create teams with customers and students.
  • The issue can be a customer’s problem.
  • Customers who work with a technology partner can also be working toward a partnership that leads to a new market together.
  • Teams are responsible for finding and using their data.
  • Teams own their IP.

Before officially registering:

  • Create a SAS profile. This is required.
  • If you are a team lead, you will want to know the specific track your team will be participating in. Additionally, the team must provide a short description of the real-world challenge — a business or humanitarian issue — it plans to tackle.
  • If you are a team member, make sure you and your team have established a team name and one team lead, as this will be required input on the registration form.
  • If you are interested in joining a team, you can connect on SAS Hacker’s Hub and find teams looking for additional teammates.

What happens after registering:

  • After completing and submitting your registration form, you'll receive an email confirming your registration form has been received and the specific steps you must take before your application is complete. Failure to do so means your application will not be considered.
  • Once all the steps are complete, your application will be reviewed by the SAS Hackathon team, and we will reach out to you to confirm your participation status.
