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.
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
