Description.

Full Day

Drupal4lib Sub-con Barcamp

UIC Forum, Room E, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on Monday, February 11

This will be a full day of self-selected barcamp style sessions. Anyone who wants to present can write down the topic on an index card and, after the keynote, we will vote to choose what we want to see. Attendees can also pick a topic and attempt to talk someone else into presenting on it.

If we run out of topics, we will pay homage to the project by testing patches for Drupal 8. It is easy, and we will show you how to do this invaluable task.

This event is open to the library community. There is a nominal fee ($10) for non-Code4LibCon attendees.

Local Drupal uber-ninja Larry Garfield had to cancel, but we were very fortunate to get Steve Persch to offer to stop by and answer questions and give us some guidance in the afternoon.

If you have not signed up. just show up and see Charlie or Cary. We will work out the details!

Open space session

Boardroom, Crowne Plaza Hotel, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm on Monday, February 11

  • Dan Chudnov, daniel.chudnov at gmail dot etc

The rest of code4libcon is pretty well structured these days; come in the morning for a few hours of old-school open space technology unconference. Bring a rough talk or idea you want to share or questions you have or something you want to learn about or discuss with other people, and be ready to tell us about it. Use it as extra prep time for your upcoming prepared or lightning talk if you want. We'll plan the morning out a little bit at the beginning, but not too much. What we do will be up to the people there in the room.

If there's interest, we could start with a "welcome to code4lib" introductory session for newcomers.

  • group discussion of what some libraries have done in this area
  • comparisons of different approaches to addressing delivery
  • overview of tools available
  • sharing of strategies and experiences
  • time to work with and review open source code in this area. Some possible tools to install and test out Umlaut, Py360 Link.

Intro to NoSQL Databases

1-470 Richard J. Daley Library, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm on Monday, February 11

  • Joshua Gomez, George Washington University, jngomez at gwu edu

Since Google published its paper on BigTable in 2006, alternatives to the traditional relational database model have been growing in both variety and popularity. These new databases (often referred to as NoSQL databases) excel at handling problems faced by modern information systems that the traditional relational model cannot. They are particularly popular among organizations tackling the so-called "Big Data" problems. However, there are always tradeoffs involved when making such dramatic changes. Understanding how these different kinds of databases are designed and what they can offer is essential to the decision making process. In this precon I will discuss some of the various types of new databases (key-value, columnar, document, graph) and walk through examples or exercises using some of their open source implementations like Riak, HBase, MongoDB or CouchDB, and Neo4j.

Half Day Afternoon

Data Visualization Hackfest

1-470 Richard J. Daley Library, 1:30 pm to 5:30 pm on Monday, February 11

  • Chris Beer, cabeer at stanford.edu
  • Dan Chudnov, dchud at gwu edu
  • Description: Want to hack/design/plan/document on a team of people who enjoy learning by creating? Interested in data visualization? Well, this hackfest is for you. Not familiar with the concept of a hackfest? See Roy Tennant's "Where Librarians Go To Hack" and the page for the Access 2010 Hackfest. We propose a half-day hackfest with a focus on visualization library data -- think stuff like library catalog data, access/circulation statistics, etc. Here's how it works, roughly:
- we'll (you'll!) do lightning tutorials for some data visualization tools, toolkits (R? d3js? ?), datasets.
- we'll separate into groups and hack on stuff.
- at the end of the day, we'll present our progress.

Not a code hacker? No worries; all skill sets and backgrounds are valuable!

Intro to Blacklight

1-1010 Richard J. Daley Library, 1:30 pm to 5:30 pm on Monday, February 11

  • Bess Sadler, Stanford University Library (bess at stanford.edu)
  • Jason Ronallo, NC State (jronallo at gmail.com)
  • Shaun Ellis (helper), Princeton University Library, (shaune@princeton.edu)

Blacklight (http://projectblacklight.org) is a free and open source discovery interface built on solr and ruby on rails. It is used by institutions such as Stanford University, NC State, WGBH, Johns Hopkins University, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and an ever expanding community of adopters and contributors. Blacklight can be used as a front-end discovery solution for an ILS, or the contents of a digital repository, or to provide a unified discovery solution for many siloed collections. In this workshop we will cover the basics of solr indexing and searching, setting up and customizing Blacklight, and leave time for Q&A around local issues people might encounter.

Note: this workshop will be tailored as a follow-on to the morning's RailsBridge Intro to Ruby on Rails workshop, but everyone is welcome

DPLA Intro/Hacking

Seminar Room A 1-470 of the Daley Library, 1:30 - 5:30 pm Mon, February 11

  • Presenter(s)/Leader(s): Nate Hill (Chattanooga Public Library, DPLA Audience and Participation Co-chair), SJ Klein (Wikimedia, OLPC, DPLA Technical Aspects Co-chair), Jeff Licht (DPLA Technical Development Project Manager)

The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) is an open source metadata repository that provides read-only access to millions of records from across the United States via an open REST API. All API queries are returned as JSON-LD, a lightweight linked data format, and the metadata is freely reusable under a CC0 public domain license. A front-end portal is currently under development and will be launched in April 2013, though it will serve as but one way into the DPLA’s data. The DPLA encourages the development of applications and tools by developers of all skill levels and backgrounds. In this workshop, participants will actively code against the API to make apps, visualization tools, plug-ins, and other interesting tools that make use of DPLA data.

Seminar A is now free. (as of 1:38pm) See you there! we will meet at 1-470 for an intro and move to a separate space to hack

I plan on attending:

  • Justin Clark, Berkman Center for Internet and Society
  • Anita Patel, Berkman Center for Internet and Society
  • Peter Murray, LYRASIS
  • Christine McClure, Illinois Institute of Technology
  • Richard Aroksaar, National Park Service
  • Maura Byrne, University of Chicago Library

Fail4lib

Fail4Lib notes

1-360 Richard J. Daley Library, 1:30 pm to 5:30 pm on Monday, February 11

  • Jason Casden, NCSU Libraries (jmcasden at ncsu.edu)
  • Andreas Orphanides, NCSU Libraries (akorphan at ncsu.edu)

The Code4lib community is full of driven people who embrace the risks that are often associated with new projects. While these traits lead to the incredible projects that are presented at Code4lib, creative technical work also often leads to unexpected, vexing, or disappointing results even from eventually successful projects (however you define the term). Learning more about how our colleagues deal with failure in various contexts could lead to the development of better methods for communicating the value of productive failure, modifying project plans ("The Pivot"), and failing more cheaply.

Hopefully we can define the format as a group, but a fairly high level of participation is crucial if this is to be a worthwhile preconference. Some possible agenda items that could be mixed and matched to fill the afternoon:

  1. Given willing presenters, a series of 10-20 minute presentations that go into some depth about specific failures.
  2. Depending on the number of participants, either a multi- or single-track series of unconference-like themed discussions on various aspects of failure, possibly including themes like:
    • Technical failure
    • Failure to effectively address a real user need
    • Overinvestment
    • Outreach/Promotion failure
    • Design/UX failure
    • Project team communication failure
    • Missed opportunities (risk-averse failure)
    • Successes gleaned from failures
  3. A panel of participants who have prepared in advance to answer moderator and audience questions about their experience with failure.
  4. A prepared reading assignment that we could all forget to read, creating a shared fail in order to start the preconference on the right foot.

I'll serve as a moderator (if needed) and participant and would welcome more organizers. I am happy to be outvoted by participants on any of these points--I just want to get us talking about our screw-ups, blind spots, and anvils dropping from the sky.

I plan on attending:

Solr 4 In Depth

UIC Forum, Room F, 1:30 pm to 5:30 pm on Monday, February 11

  • Contact: Erik Hatcher (erik.hatcher at lucidworks.com)

The long awaited and much anticipated Solr 4 has been released! It's a really big deal. There are so many improvements, it makes the head spin. This session will cover the major feature improvements from Lucene's flexible indexing and scoring API up through SolrCloud in a digestable half-day format. Sounds like this is an evening thing that might happen at a bar somewhere?
