We want to bring the code{4}lib experience to the library community in the Maryland, Washington, D.C., and the great Commonwealth of Virginia area. Our hope is that meeting at the regional level will strengthen local connections and help us develop more real-world collaboration.

We met quarterly throughout 2012. We've enjoyed a number of in depth technical presentations on a variety of topics. Meetings have been free to attend. Past host institutions have been the Smithsonian, GWU, and the Arlington Public Library. We're looking forward to a 2013 of the same calibre. If you are in the area, please do feel free to drop in. If you are unable to make it in person, check with the hosts to see if distance participation is an option. We did have one distance person with us at one of the Smithsonian meet ups. :)

Connect with fellow code-interested cultural heritage professionals at two side-by-side events: a DC-area code4lib unconference and an introduction to programming workshop.  As typical of unconferences, the content and activities of the day are determined by the attendees. Bring your ideas! We encourage everyone to consider giving a 10-20 minute talk, a lightning talk, lead a workshop, or organize another activity.
+
 
+
The two events are intended to provide an inclusive, welcoming environment, supported by the [http://www.diglib.org/about/code-of-conduct/ DLF Code of Conduct]. The schedule includes opportunities for the attendees in each track to meet each other, including a plenary opening session, shared lightning talks, Day 2 afternoon unconference events, and combined coffee/lunch/snack breaks.

These events are sponsored by the Digital Library Federation and the GW Libraries.

With representatives present from Public, Academic, and Special Libraries, this looked to be a great start to rejuvenating the Chapter. (School Librarians, come out and play!) We had a great discussion about Linked Data. We reaffirmed that we'll hold quarterly meetings, and that doing so regularly will help keep things rolling. We hope to have diverse subjects to explore to keep everyone's interest. We'll hold off on formal governance until a larger group necessitates formality.

The Martin Luther King Library in the District would like help with [http://wikidc.org/wiki/Library_Lab Library Lab DC] if anyone would like to participate in that endeavour. This is also a wonderful place to go if you're looking for spot to house open collaboration.

Code4Lib DMV (previously MDC - Washington D.C, Maryland, Virginia)

We want to bring the code{4}lib experience to the library community in the Maryland, Washington, D.C., and the great Commonwealth of Virginia area. Our hope is that meeting at the regional level will strengthen local connections and help us develop more real-world collaboration.

The group first formed in 2009, met quarterly beginning in fall 2011 and through the end of 2012, and once per year in 2014 and 2015. We've enjoyed a number of in depth technical presentations on a variety of topics. Meetings have been free to attend. Past host institutions have been NAL, the Smithsonian, GWU, Arlington Public Library, and University of Maryland College Park. If you are in the area, please do feel free to drop in. If you are unable to make it in person, check with the hosts to see if distance participation is an option.
