National Center for Biomedical Ontology [NCBO] Hackathon – March 26-27, 2012

Do you have a task in biomedical or clinical informatics that will benefit from the use of ontologies or ontology-based technology? Want to brainstorm application design and development questions? Want help incorporating the NCBO Web services into your application?

Join us for the first-ever NCBO Hackathon. This event will include two days of intensive hands-on sessions to facilitate the development of applications using NCBO Web services. We will devote extensive time to your software development project and will have presentations covering a range of topics from application design to coding. You will:

  • Brainstorm ideas for applications
  • Discuss coding issues, performance tuning, and future development plans
  • Learn about the suite of NCBO Web services and how they are (and have been!) used in applications. Examples include access to ontologies, search, mappings, term proposals, text annotation, and biomedical resource search (the “Resource Index”)
  • Hear about the design of our RDF triple store and learn how to access the triple-store directly from your application using the SPARQL query language

Early registration is $25, but spots are limited so register online now.
