TEI Hackathon at DH2015: Building Tools for TEI Collections

The TEI Consortium is sponsoring a Hackathon at DH2015 on 29 June 2015. To
register for the Hackathon you must first submit a brief application at
http://tinyurl.com/tei-hackathon-dh2015 prior to registering for the
'workshop' on the http://dh2015.org/ website. You'll be notified by 15 May
(if not before) of your acceptance on the hackathon.

The Guidelines of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) are widely used for
creating resources, but there is little standardisation across multiple
projects for querying, searching, and analysing TEI-encoded texts.
Developers unfamiliar with the TEI often approach the development of TEI
processing systems either with trepidation or ignorance of  potential
complications. This unconference-style Hackathon is open either to
developers with very little TEI experience (but significant programming
skills) or experts in the TEI (with a little programming experience), or
people who have both. It is not a training workshop!

There is no charge for those attending this day-long workshop, but you will
be expected to work in groups to program something useful. Applications to
join the Hackathon should be completed online at
http://tinyurl.com/tei-hackathon-dh2015 before 1 May. Applicants will be
notified of acceptance by 15 May. Late applications will be considered if
there is space.
