This un-conference session will facilitate conversation and collaboration among developers working with cultural heritage data. At the beginning of the session, developers will be invited to briefly talk about a project they are working on, including one thing they find promising and one thing they find challenging about the project. We will identify common promises/challenges and form breakout groups to discuss them in more detail. Conversation and hacking are both encouraged. At the end of the session, we will reconvene to share the fruits of our conversations.
