LibHack 2014 <http://www.libhack.org/> is a hackathon focused on
library-related APIs, and will be held at the University of Pennsylvania's
Van Pelt Library on Friday, January 24, 2014. There are two tracks - one
for the OCLC APIs, and one for the Digital Public Library of America's API.
While the OCLC track is targeted towards beginners and the DPLA track is
targeted towards "intermediate/advanced" hackers, beginners interested in
the DPLA should not be scared away! We'll have several DPLA staff members
available throughout the day (two for the whole day, and two others at
various points of the day) able to answer your questions and help you to
LibHack is the same weekend is the 2014 American Library Association
Midwinter Meeting, but is not part of the official ALA Midwinter program.
Therefore, you're welcome to participate without attending or registering
for ALA Midwinter.
Registration is $25.00 through Eventbrite:
