Last week Wouter and Senne teamed up with Mehmet Celik from LIBIS to participate in a hackathon organized by Europeana. The goal was to develop an application or website using the Europeana API, which holds data from millions of books, paintings, films, museum objects and archival records that have been digitised throughout Europe. Twenty-five developers took part and created a total of twelve prototypes in just two days.
The awards for the best prototypes were categorized by four themes:
- Best commercial viability
- Greatest social impact
- Most innovative
- Developers’ pick
Our prototype, called Stackathon, won the award for best commercial viability! Being the most important award, we are invited to present our app at the Digital Agenda Assembly 2012 in Brussels on June 22nd.
With Stackathon you can easily search the Europeana database and attach audio annotations to your favorite artworks. Once finished, you can publish your recordings and share a unique HTML5 player which can be accessed with any device.
