After SXSW

Saturday March 28 and Sunday March 29


The following are outline timings for the event which are unlikely to change. Apart from these timings, exactly how we spend the time will largely be determined during the event.

Liz Pruszko, a Project Manager at Phase2 Technology, will be here and leading a session of where Drupal is with Semantic Web and going with RDFa on Saturday March 28 at 2:00pm. Phase2 developed the Open Calais plugin for Drupal, therefore we will also have a hands-on session of using Drupal and Open Calais to create Linked Data! Liz will be doing a live demo using the "demo" of OpenPublish. As for hands-on, if anyone might be interested in setting up a Drupal site/instance for themselves, they could download and setup OpenPublish in advance and mirror what she does in the demo.
