The 2021 Edition of the Swiss Open Cultural Data Hackathon is hosted by the ETH Library in Zurich and will take place online on April 16 & 17.
Once a year, the OpenGLAM Working Group carries out the Swiss Open Cultural Data Hackathon by bringing together data suppliers, software developers, digital humanists, artists, Wikimedians, Wikipedians and many other interesting characters to experiment with unique cultural data.
The event explores exciting questions, such as:
How can contents from cultural resources, collections, archives, museums and libraries be used in current research?
What innovative web and mobile applications can be developed with those data?
Can the content be used for Wikipedia or for artistic creations?
Are there any other feasible applications for the data?
Related events with presentations and workshops have been scheduled on 13 and 15 April.
There will be a Warm-up Session on 3 March for newcomers as well as an Onboarding Session on 9 April for everyone who would like to get acquainted with the tools and the datasets a week ahead of the hackathon.
