We thought it was about time to go orange again, meet the Dutch DBpedia Chapter and to meet and celebrate the growing dutch DBpedia community. Thus, following our successful US-event past November, the National Library of the Netherlands hosted the 6th DBpedia community meeting in The Hague on February 12th.
The submission deadline for mentoring organizations to submit their application for the 2016 Google Summer of Code is approaching quickly. As DBpedia is again planning to be a vital part of the Mentoring Summit, we like to take that opportunity to give you a little recap of the projects mentored by DBpedia members during the past GSoC, in November 2015.
A belated Happy New Year to all DBpedia enthusiasts !!!
Two weeks of 2016 have already passed and it is about time to reflect on the past three months which were revolving around the 5th DBpedia meeting in the USA.
