On the 10th and 11th of April 2014, the Succeed project will hold a hackathon at the University of Alicante, whose aim is to look at improving the state-of-the-art open-source tools for the digitisation of textual content such as books and newspapers.
Over the two days, developers will work together in small groups to discuss, roadmap and plan the future development of existing tools. Some of the topics up for discussion are:
* How to train the Tesseract
* Creation of XSLT stylesheets for format conversion, e.g. hOCR, PAGE,
* Debian package generation.
The hackathon provides a unique opportunity to meet developers involved in digitisation projects all over Europe. Participation to the event is FREE OF CHARGE, but please make sure you reserve <https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2nd-succeed-dev-workshop-hackathon-tickets-10907317079> your place. Participants are also encouraged to take a look at Last year's hackathon's outcomes <http://www.digitisation.eu/blog/1st-succeed-hackathon-kb/> and background information <http://succeed-project.eu/wiki/index.php/Developers_workshops_%28hackathons%29>.
