Featured Dataset: BBC Music

August 2, 2011 by


Featured Dataset: BBC Music Our next developer event for Kasabi will be based on culture, so I thought it’d be a good idea to feature a musical dataset today.

As mentioned earlier, we held our first themed hackday this week, and I’m happy to be able to feature one of the datasets published by a hacker during the event. I’m very excited about this dataset.
