On Friday, September 6, the University of Pennsylvania will host PennApps, the largest student-run hackathon in the world. As part of the event, the Penn Libraries will provide work space for 200 hackathon participants in the newly renovated Special Collections Center. A $500 prize will also be awarded to the team that develops the best app using library data.
This post about the PennApps Hackathon is reblogged from the fantastic Apps On Tap site. I was thrilled to see that images and data from the Penn Provenance Project on Flickr are going to be used! The event sounds like great fun and I'm looking forward to learning about all of the cool apps that get developed this weekend!
