Announcing the next WorldCat Mashathon. Sponsored by the OCLC Developer Network and the University of Washington libraries, the WorldCat Mashathon will be held Thursday and Friday, November 5-6 at Odegaard Undergraduate Library in Seattle, WA. The Seattle Mashathon will follow the same format as previous events in Amsterdam and New York. You'll spend two days brainstorming and coding mash-ups with local systems and other Web services to take advantage of all that WorldCat, the world's largest and most comprehensive bibliographic database, has to offer. Developers from the library community and beyond are encouraged to attend. WorldCat includes materials from libraries around the world, including images, video games, movies, articles, books, maps and more. Why attend the WorldCat Mashathon? • Brainstorm potential apps for the WorldCat Search API, our bibliographic grouping services and other OCLC Web services. • Get a preview of the new WorldCat Basic API. • Gain development access to 1.4 billion items from more than 10,000 libraries worldwide. • Integrate these resources with many others to create innovative new services. • Meet fellow developers across the information industry. • Share your creative vision and be a part of the next wave of online library development. Roy will kick off the session, as usual. Fellow OCLC Developer Network staff will also be around to answer questions and help you make best use of your time. You'll come away with a fountain of ideas and good contacts for continuing development. Outcomes and code from the Mashathon will be shared during and after the event, in case you're not able to attend. A small fee of US$ 30 is required, but please contact us if the fee poses a significant hardship. Learn more and register now for the Mashathon.
