Apologies for Cross-postings. Please share widely if so inclined! It seemed like the Omeka crowd and DPLA and Ada Lovelace Day might have some happy overlap.
We want to invite you to get involved with the DPLA Ada Lovelace Day, a coordinated, multi-community event happening on October 13, 2015. The goal of this day is to inspire and guide simultaneous DPLA Ada Day events in different communities and cities on Ada Lovelace Day. The simultaneous events will celebrate the life and work of Ada Lovelace by using the DPLA digital collections and related tools to make women in technology, science and mathematics apps, projects, syllabi, essays, digital exhibitions or anything else in the spirit of Ada Lovelace day. We welcome anyone and everyone to organize a DPLA Ada Lovelace Day event in your own area; these can be hackathons, workshops, or any other event permutation, with the shared focus on women in technology, science, and mathematics highlighted by working with the DPLA collections. To coordinate, a list of events being planned will be available on the DPLA Ada Lovelace Day site. Additionally, at the end of the day, communities’ creations and responses to the event will be shared on this site. See more information there: http://dpladalovelace.us/
I’ll be planning on some work making Omeka play better with the DPLA API. Thoughts, ideas, and especially local event plans are much appreciated!
