2014 Prepared Talk Proposals
Proposals for Prepared Talks:
Prepared talks are 20 minutes (including setup and questions), and should focus on one or more of the following areas:
- Projects you've worked on which incorporate innovative implementation of existing technologies and/or development of new software
- Tools and technologies – How to get the most out of existing tools, standards and protocols (and ideas on how to make them better)
- Technical issues - Big issues in library technology that should be addressed or better understood
- Relevant non-technical issues – Concerns of interest to the Code4Lib community which are not strictly technical in nature, e.g. collaboration, diversity, organizational challenges, etc.
To Propose a Talk
- Log in to the wiki in order to submit a proposal. If you are not already registered, follow the instructions to do so.
- Provide a title and brief (500 words or fewer) description of your proposed talk.
- If you so choose, you may also indicate when, if ever, you have presented at a prior Code4Lib conference. This information is completely optional, but it may assist us in opening the conference to new presenters.
As in past years, the Code4Lib community will vote on proposals that they would like to see included in the program. This year, however, only the top 10 proposals will be guaranteed a slot at the conference. Additional presentations will be selected by the Program Committee in an effort to ensure diversity in program content. Community votes will, of course, still weigh heavily in these decisions.
Presenters whose proposals are selected for inclusion in the program will be guaranteed an opportunity to register for the conference. The standard conference registration fee will still apply.
Proposals can be submitted through Friday, November 8, 2013, at 5pm PST. Voting will commence on November 18, 2013 and continue through December 6, 2013. The final line-up of presentations will be announced in early January, 2014.
Using Drupal to drive alternative presentation systems
- Cary Gordon, The Cherry Hill Company, firstname.lastname@example.org
Recently, we have been building systems that use angular.js, Rails, or other systems for presentation, while leveraging Drupal's sophisticated content management capabilities on the back end.
So far, these have been one-way systems, but as we move to Drupal 8 we are beginning to explore ways to further decouple the presentation and CMS functions.
