Swiss Open Cultural Data Hackathon - Press & Blog review

On January 27th and 28th 2015 the first Swiss Open Cultural Data Hackathon took place at the Swiss National Library.

More than 100 programmers, GLAM representatives and scholars worked together over the course of two days in an attempt to make the most of a selection of open cultural datasets provided by Museums, Libraries and Archives in Switzerland for this particular event. More than twenty projects were carried out during the two-day Hackathon. This post displays the results of this event.
