Pre-conference delivered at Code4Lib 2014. This structured hackfest will give attendees an opportunity to explore methods to create responsive mobile apps using the Bootstrap framework and a set of APIs for accessing library data. We will start with an API template for creating space-based mobile tools that draw from work coming out of the IMLS funded Student/Library Collaborative grant. Available APIs will include a room reservation template and codebase for implementing at any campus and the set of Minrva catalog APIs generating JSON.
Hosts will give a brief report of a study on student hacking projects and interests in mobile library apps that are the basis for the templates utilized in this Hackfest. By the end of the pre-conference attendees will have a sample responsive mobile web app in Bootstrap 3 to bring back to their campus which can plug into their site-based content.
