Planning for the code4lib 1-day preconference at ELAG2010 in Helsinki (Finland)

You can get more information about what ELAG looks like at the ELAG2009 website at or the Elag2008 website which has more footage.

At this stage (2009-06-04) things are pretty much wide open about this : feel free to step in.

Ideas for topics

  • Initial suggested topic for the preconference : lucene/solr ("A backend for your new catalogue in 15 minutes. Bring your data!")
  • other idea (but maybe less "hands on"?): Drilling holes into that data silo. How to connect cool tools (eg NGCs/DIs) to legacy library systems? What's available, what's needed and what's practical?

Stylish questions

  • A real geeky coding session for library hackers or a more guided but "hands on" approach? Please no "workshop" in the "28 minutes talks/2 minutes questions" style.
  • What infrastructure will be available? BYO hard/software? Reliable net connection?
