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. Register soon at the link below to hold your spot!


Look forward to seeing you this Spring!
