Sharing for the Code4Lib-ers who are going to be at ALA MW and interested in programming.
This is a beginner-friendly event and does NOT require ALA Midwinter registration.
ALA Midwinter Hackathon – 1/24, Philly
Registration <https://libhack2014.eventbrite.com/> is $25 and includes lunch, snacks, a t-shirt, and an unlimited stream of coffee.
LibHack is an “unofficial” ALA event, meaning you do not have to register for Midwinter to attend LibHack.
9:30-10am: Coffee and registration
10-11am: Welcome and introduction to the OCLC and DPLA APIs
4:30-5pm: Show and tell and closing
5pm-?: Post-event merriment, venue TBA
After a quick welcome at 10am, we’ll break off into two separate tracks – one room for WorldCat Search API hacking and another room for DPLA API hacking. API specialists will be on hand to give an introduction to each API and discuss what you can do with the APIs. At 11am, the hacking begins!
We’ll regroup at 4:30pm and everyone will have a chance to showcase what they learned and created during the day. After the event we’ll head out for food, drinks, and merriment, venue TBA.
