Event Details

PDF Liberation Hackathon:

Extracting useful information from PDFs is a problem as old as … PDFs. Too often we focus on extracting information from a specific set of documents instead of looking at the bigger picture.


If you’ve ever struggled with this problem, join Sunlight Foundation and Public Sector Credit Solutions for Sunlight’s PDF Liberation Hackathon dedicated to improving open source tools for PDF extraction.


Schedule:

Friday Happy Hour at Sunlight Foundation starting at 5:00pm ends at 7:00pm

Saturday - Starts at 9:00am ends at 5:00pm

Sunday - Starts at 9:00 ends at 1:00pm


We'll have several locations, so if you're interested in attending, please fill out this form to indicate which location works best for you and what your development background is. This event is part of Data Innovation Day.


Be social, share #PDFhacks14 with your tweeps!


See you there!
