Hackfest - Hacking Open Data

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Transform, Remix, Reuse!
Build on open cultural heritage collections & data with the Library Idea Drop House

In support and celebration of the potential of open data in cultural heritage, we are hosting a mini hackfest at the Idea Drop house.

This is a one day hackathon that will bring together coders, thinkers, activists and Austin area citizens to collaboratively explore and build new ideas around open data. 

Some potential projects could be:

  • A creative app incorporating fiction or non fiction storytelling with open images
  • A game that incorporates location data and images from the area
  • A game that educates students about fair use by allowing them to play with available images to make a social media avatar or animated gif


You can participate by yourself or in a team--the more the merrier!

Snacks and a variety of local brews and other drinks will be provided.
