On Sunday, April 27, 2014, from 1-5 pm, there will be a FREE hackathon on DPLA prior to the Texas Conference on Digital Libraries (TCDL) taking place in Austin, TX, on the University of Texas campus.
The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) is a platform that enables new and transformative uses of digitized cultural heritage materials, based on a metadata repository that provides read-only access to millions of records from across the United States via an open API. In this workshop, participants will actively code against the DPLA API to build or enhance apps, visualization tools, plug-ins, and other interesting tools that make use of DPLA data.
