Developers from around Australasia are invited to participate in a competition to integrate library data from libraries around Australia and New Zealand.
This event kicks off with an ideas competition, where ideas to utilise library data can be submitted by April 30, 2011.
The main entries – the apps, websites, mashups, and interfaces – are due in by May 31, 2011.
In Victoria, the State Library of Victoria will be holding a two day event to support and encourage developers in their participation in this contest. On Friday May 20, 2011 developers, students, tech-heads and gurus will get together to discuss the opportunities presented by Libraryhack. On Saturday May 21, 2011, we invite everyone to get their hands dirty at the SLV Experimedia centre. Showoff your work, get ideas, seek help in getting your project ready in time for the competition. Event times are 10.30 – 5.30 both days. Entry is free! Registration opens soon.
