  • The Museu Picasso hosted a Europeana Hackathon in June 2011 The hackathons are workshops bringing together competent and enthusiastic software developers to build cool projects within a day or two (sketches, prototypes, even working applications).
  • You may be wondering: why the Museu Picasso got involved in a Hackathon?
  • So, the hackathon philosphy lies on Open Data context
  • the philosophy of making content and tools available to users is what leads the joint effort of museums+Europeana+developers: -Museums have the collections and the aim of extending knowledge and enjoyment of it to the greatest possible number of users. -Europeana currently offers access to near 20 million cultural objects, has the same aim as the Museum. -The expert developers have the skills and the talent to make the data ‘play’ and extract open applications that are made accessible to the public.
  • Amazing what could be done in just one and a half day!!!
  • - Going Mobile : applications for bringing Europeana to mobile devices - Multilingual : applications that facilitate mashups to provide translations or create multilingual tags for Europeana metadata - Going Social : applications for bringing Europeana metadata to the social networks - Data Visualization : combining data to visually and user-ftriendly present the different types of content on Europeana
  • Barcelona Hackathon Awards: Innovation: (shared) : Sergio Manuel Galán Nieto y Víctor Manuel Díaz Barrales , "Colour art bits Bert Balcaen , "Colour chronology   Commercial potential :   David A.
