Spend a day hacking the traditional definition of a book and building new digital interpretations. The Books in Browsers hackday is an opportunity for active software engineers and designers to work together to build interoperable projects using openly available or donated code, content, and APIs.

Books in Browsers (BiB) is an exploration of cutting edge digital book production, design, and interaction. It primarily targets software developers and user experience designers who are actively working or directly influential in web-based publishing. Providing an opportunity for cross-fertilization across domains, BiB catalyzes conceptions of publishing not otherwise imaginable.
