First Mapping Sprint Hackathon
We are pleased to announce the first mapping sprint in the Italian DBpedia history! On April 16th, our amazing team will be at the Bertrand Russell high school in Cles, Trento, Italy for a tough challenge. Cristian, vice president of Wikimedia Italy, will be with us to drive the kids through the Italian Open Data magic world.
During this marathon, students from 5 classes will become hackers for one day and race together to achieve ultimate glory.
Mapping sprints have already been carried out several times with the same objectives. The competition between countries becomes here a competition between students.
According to the amount of submitted mappings, we will rank the performances and let the best win.
Then, we will hold a prize-giving event with the famous Italian writer Carmine Abate.
