Semantic Hackathon

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.

Who: Developers, designers, and others interested in semantic technology
What: A day-long hackathon to build applications that help further expand the semantic web, or demonstrate the power of accessible web data
Where: Citizen Space, 425 2nd St., Suite 100, San Francisco, CA 94107

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
