Have ideas for how you would mashup cultural heritage data, build new visualizations, find new ways to explore collections? Join us to get hands-on and creative with DPLA data, no matter what your technical expertise is. Not only will you learn about different ways to access and reuse DPLA data and content, but we’ll also be giving intros, tips, and tutorials for ways you can access and build with open data from the National Archives, Europeana, New York Public Library, and Historypin. If you have data skills or datasets you want to share, this will be a great place to do that as well, as we’ll be help each other to get small prototypes off the ground. The hackathon will continue on through the next two days at DPLAfest, and participants will have a chance to show off what they’ve built/played with/hacked together in short lightning sessions on Friday afternoon’s developer showcase.

Please note that registration for DPLAfest is required to attend this pre-fest portion of the hackathon.
