The collaborative tools and the charter repository of the Monasterium – Collaborative Archive (MOM-CA) are developed by an active Open Source Software community, currently based in Cologne, Graz and Vienna. This year, the MOM-CA developer community conducts its first “MOM-CA Hackathon”, an unconference, where developers meet face-to-face to implement selected features for the MOM-CA platform and to discuss actual and future trends in the development of digital archives.

On Monday the focus will lie on a general introduction to the development process behind MOM-CA.

Tuesday a workshop on “How do install and work with MOM-CA on my laptop?” will introduce the practical aspects of this software to interested participants. Everyone interested is invited to join!
