Europeana: Vienna Hackathon Winners Take Part in Workshop + Live Prototype + Video/Presentations from Tech Conference
Last week on Thursday and Friday we welcomed the winners of the EuropeanaTech Hackathon in Vienna who took part in a workshop designed to move their product ideas further along the path to a ‘marketable’ website or app.
The winners of the hackathon were the EuropeanaGlobe team (Anja Jentzsch, Ulrike Krabo, Elaheh Momeni, Petr Pridal and Rainer Simon) who created a beautiful map-based search interface using only open search and browser based components.
In the workshop they were represented by Petr Pridal of Klokan Technologies and Rainer Simon of the Austrian Institute of Technology
Runners up were Diego Ceccarelli of CNR-ISTI and Hugo Huurdeman who created Semantic Search Shortcuts, a method of enhancing the query suggestions by using log file analysis and semantic concepts.
The second runner up of the Vienna hackathon was unfortunately not able to attend. So filling that slot on very short notice were Maarten Zeinstra of Kennisland and Maarten Brinkerink of Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid who worked on a Wikimedia Upload facility for galleries, libraries, archives and museums, something they had worked on at a previous Europeana Hackathon.
