7th Swiss Open Cultural Data Hackathon - Online Edition

Once a year, the GLAMhack brings together data providers, software developers, digital humanists, artists, Wikimedians/Wikipedians, and others in order to experiment how cultural data and content can be used for research purposes, for web and mobile apps, in the context of Wikipedia, for artistic re-mixes, or for other forms of re-use. This year, our hackathon will take place online.
