Spring Hackaton organized by the Open Preservation Foundation

The Open Preservation Foundation is organizing an online Spring Hackaton starting Monday 27 April. It is an opportunity to learn some new skills as well as make a meaningful contribution to open source software, relied on by the digital preservation community.

There are three themes with staggered kick-off calls to provide an introduction to the tasks and to connect with other contributors: Development (Monday 27 April), Documentation (Monday 4 May), Research (Monday 11 May).

The hackathon is open to everyone and will run for six weeks. There are a variety of tasks, so participants should be able to find something they can work on given the time, knowledge, and skills available to them.
