espnW Hackathon winners get a VIP tour of the Bristol campus

By now you’ve heard and read countless times — on this blog and elsewhere — about how ESPN and our campus here in Bristol, Conn., is a great place to work. Every week we host world-class athletes and other famous people from sports and entertainment, which is just part of the appeal. But, every so often, we have guests on campus who bring a slightly different perspective, appreciation and enthusiasm for this place.

Such was the case last week, when the winners of the espnW Hackathon — Ditaya Das, Divya Natesan and Pooja Gada, all Carnegie Mellon University grads — spent a day with us in Bristol. Their visit was part of their grand prize award, which included a VIP tour of campus and an ESPN meet-and-greet with leaders of ESPN’s Digital Media and espnW teams, including presentation of their “iSports” app, which won the competition last fall.

Check out their version of an ESPN “Car Wash” in the video above.
