Personal Digital Archiving Hackathon

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Have you ever wondered what will happen to all the data you will create over your lifetime?

Consider your email, social media data, websites, photos, videos, documents, and all of the other files and traces you create and interact with on an ongoing basis. Do you know how you will preserve the data, understand it, and use it in the future?

Join friends and fellow coders to create innovative solutions to the ongoing challenges facing individuals (including digital humanists and cultural heritage researchers) in the digital age, including how we can best analyze, visualize, and use the immense variety of personal data that we are all creating.

How can we best make sense of the digital strands and data that comprise a 21st century life?

Join your friends! Eat our food! Win our prizes! Keep the present safe for the future! Read about requirements, judges, prizes, and more at our Devpost page. 

Note: In order to participate in the Hackathon, you must register via Devpost as well as via Eventbrite by 4 PM on March 31.

Sponsors for this hackathon include Stanford University Libraries' Department of Special Collections and University ArchivesCenter for Interdisciplinary Digital Research (CIDR), and ePADD.
