Event Details


This is a day to hack upon culture. It is open to anyone interested in hacking, data, culture etc, and we're looking to explore ideas for applications, datasets, mashups and the rest. There will be lunch at the venue, and plenty of coffee (our special SPARQL Blend) to fuel coding and collaboration.

The topic, is broad and the potential applications are huge and fun to imagine. Kasabi is a place for data, both to publish and build upon, so there will be ready access to datasets covering such things as:

* music

* art

* theatre

* history

* food

* events

We're looking for some more ideas for datasets, so if you're interested in contributing data for the event, we'd love to hear from you too.

Who should come? 

It's open to anyone, but developers who are interested in any of the following might find it most useful:

* Hacks and Mashups

* Apps (web and mobile)

* Data

* Semantic Web/Linked Data
