Join fellow coders for a two-day WorldCat Mashathon at the International Institute of Social History. Sponsored by the OCLC Developer Network and IISH, the WorldCat Mashathon gives participants the opportunity for two full days of brainstorming and coding mash-ups with local systems and other Web services to take advantage of all that WorldCat, the world’s largest bibliographic database, has to offer. To get an impression of what the event may be like, take a look at pictures from the WorldCat Hackathon in New York.
Roy Tennant of OCLC Research and longtime Code4Lib participant will kick off the session. Additional OCLC staff from across Europe will also be available for questions and breakout facilitation. Ideas, outcomes and code from the Mashathon, together with a linked participants list, will be shared during and after the event for others to download and build on.
Web Services provided for the Mashathon by OCLC include the following:

Bring your laptop, your ideas and your curiosity, and we’ll supply breakfast, lunch and snacks. We will also facilitate forming dinner groups for Wednesday night. Also, every participant receives a t-shirt.
A small registration fee of 25 Euros is required to participate. Space is limited to the first 65 participants, so register early to assure your participation. So far, we have received registrations from Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands, United Kingdom, United States.
