Hi Chris,

very cool. Because of your feedback, we created a special track: 
https://wiki.dbpedia.org/events/dbpedia-autumn-hackathon-2020

**


      *## TL;DR Track*

***The Too Long; Didn’t Read Track is for submissions such as this one 
<https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-lod/2020Sep/0016.html>; for 
devs that coded something with DBpedia not fitting in any other track. *
