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