Hackathon - Building the IMS Ecosystem - Thursday 17 August and Friday 18 August - Agenda

Calling all developers, programmers, engineers, UI designers and any educational technologists to join us for a two-day hackathon. Improve your skills and knowledge working with the latest versions of IMS Global standards like LTI, Content-Item Message and Caliper Analytics. Presented by the Learning Tools & Content Innovation Leadership Network, this is your opportunity to network with peers and get assistance from IMS staff. Come with your own project or check out what others are doing. The hackathon kicks off with participants or teams making a two-minute pitch to the group about their project. Then let the hack begin! For those who are interested, short, special topic workshops are available to get you started. We will wrap up the two-day event with a showcase where projects can be demonstrated.

*Breakfast and lunch provided.
