This Hackathon will provide participants with a chance to learn about what digital forensics has to offer to the digital preservation community by getting hands on with data, tools and new techniques. Our expert facilitators will be on hand to guide you through these challenging concepts and processes in a manner that is easy to understand and apply.
The agenda for the event is set by you: the collection owners. You will bring with you disk images of digital data you want to assess, analyze and preserve. As part of a team, and with support from experts, you'll apply forensics tools to solve your digital preservation challenges.
The technical problem solving and software development will be delivered by you: the developers. You will bring with you your laptop-based development setup and your best coding skills. Working closely with other developers, and our experts, you'll apply forensics and other software tools to solve the digital preservation challenges provided by the practitioners.
**Unlike our usual events, we need to review applications to make sure you're a good match for the event. This is because the format for the three days requires people to be either collection owners who can come with very specific technical challenges or developers who can help to solve those challenges. It's NOT just an event for people to come and listen to speakers. We want to be sure that everyone coming is here for the right reasons.
Registration Fee: $150 (includes lunch on all three days and dinner on Monday and Tuesday) [NOTE: Registration fee is waived for OPF members]. Once you have been approved you will be directed to the event registration site.
