HTML Webmaker Slides Driven by Popcorn

Earlier this month I was kindly invited to talk at Hack de Overheid, a very well-organized hackathon in Amsterdam for building apps around open data sets.

There were 20-odd governmental organizations and civic institutions pitching their datasets. The content ranged from cultural data from museums and archives to open API calls from the fire department.

You even receive a coveted coffee cup when you release a dataset, based on the five-star Linked Data scheme by Tim Berners-Lee.

Below are the slides I made for the talk, based on Mark Surman’s Personal Democracy Forum keynote.

I enjoyed making these slides because:

  • I learned to hack together a new webmaker theme
  • It uses Popcorn.js to drive the slide transitions (thanks, Ben!)
  • It’s very easy and fun to change the images in HTML slides.
