Registration for the third Swiss Open Cultural Data Hackathon is open. This year’s event takes place on 15-16 September 2017 at the University of Lausanne, with support from some of the leading cultural institutions in the country. Here are a couple of reasons I’m especially excited about the event next month:
- There are going to be amazing people there, very likely doing some unique, creative, out-of-all-boxes projects
- GLAM is an area of the openness movement enjoying wide support, acclaim and all-you-can-eat data
- We are running a Data Literacy workshop on Friday afternoon (check the programme for all the activities planned)
- It will be at my old school (I roamed those halls for a while shortly after the turn of the century), a beautiful campus
- 3rd time’s a winner!
Hope to see you there!
