Urania Berlin, June 6-7, 2011

Movie Hack Day

moviehackday.com
What
The @moviehackday is a full weekend of hacking on all things movies. Anything from building your own recommender system, using existing software like Mahout to create cool new applications or throwing together a couple of movie APIs and making the next killer app. And everybody loves fancy data visualizations, right?

It takes place on the weekend before the berlinbuzzwords in the offices of moviepilot, a movie recommendation startup based in Berlin. We’ll be hacking Saturday, Saturnight and through the whole Sunday (beer and pizza will be supplied). We might also watch a movie or two.

The purpose of this event is having fun and making stuff, so there’s two types of registrations: hacker and slacker. In order to make stuff, hacking is required. Therefore Saturday and Sunday is hackers only, so if you register as a hacker, you got to code! If you don’t want to get your hands dirty and just watch, however, sign up as a slacker and check out the demo session on Sunday.

As there’s very limited seats available: only sign up if you really plan to come.
