National Center for Biomedical Ontology is hosting two Developer Events
The National Center for Biomedical Ontology is hosting two developer events this spring: a Training Course on Building Applications with Biomedical Ontologies at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) and an NCBO Hackathon at Stanford University.
The training course on Building Applications with Biomedical Ontologies will take place on April 18-19, 2013. This course will be taught by a team from EBI (James Malone and Simon Jupp) and a team from Stanford (Trish Whetzel and Paul Alexander). We will cover topics such as the OWL ontology language, working with RDF and SPARQL, and how to work with ontologies using NCBO Technology. Those attending the course should already have basic familiarity with both ontologies and programming in Java. Checkout the link below for more information and register soon since space is limited!
The NCBO Hackathon will take place at Stanford University on April 29-30, 2013. This event will focus on projects in biomedical or clinical informatics that can benefit from use of ontology-based technology. The entire NCBO Team will be available to brainstorm application ideas and to answer development questions. We will also have separate sessions to provide training on the NCBO Web services, the BioPortal SPARQL endpoint, and other topics of interest requested by participants. If you are thinking of incorporating semantics into your software application, the Hackathon will provide a great opportunity to get a head start on your project.
