This NCBO Hackathon will consist of 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 high-level application design to low-level coding. You will be able to:
- 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
