The inaugural hackathon at the Semantic Technology & Business Conference, Semantic Hack, will now be held at Citizen Space, a membership-based, coworking space located in San Francisco, very near the conference hotel.
With plenty of flexible space, a relaxed environment, lots of experience hosting hackathons, and an impressive list of other amenities, Citizen Space promises to be a perfect location for developers and designers to gather for a fun day of coding!
Semantic Hack is a day-long coding event that asks “What could you build if the entire web was your database?” — and then challenges participants to do it!
Semantic Hack brings together developers and designers to work with advanced web-page extraction technologies, RDF, OWL, SPARQL, linked data, sentiment analysis, newly available datasets, and other semantic technologies that help make the web more readable, accessible and dynamic for humans and more interpretable by machines. PLUS, you don’t have to know anything about semantics to attend. If you do, great! But if not, this will be a great way to get started exploring.
Teams will compete to create the most intriguing and innovative apps atop these technologies, driving to win prizes and — who knows? — even help to usher in the next phase of the web.
There is no cost to sign up, and sponsorship opportunities are available. For more details, visit the Semantic Hack site.
