We met quarterly throughout 2012, and continuing through 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 the Smithsonian, GWU, and the Arlington Public Library. 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.

Come and join me for an afternoon filled with circuits and silicon! We'll be learning the basics of breadboards and simple circuits, and will deconstruct and then rebuild our own input/output systems with Arduino. Learn the basics of programming to the Arduino...hardware will be provided, although you will need your own laptop (or are comfortable team learning with someone else). The goal of the workshop will be to give you enough knowledge that you can build a simple sensor to measure something in your environment (noise, temperature, light, moisture) and to make you more comfortable with working with hardware. This session is designed for beginners who do not have experience with circuits, breadboards, Arduino, or other aspects of hardware hacking.
 
 
If you are planning to attend this hardware hacking afternoon, you will need to install a couple of things before you arrive to save time. Please download and install both the Arduino IDE 1.0.5 and the FTDI Drivers (serial drives for the Sparkfun Redboard), linked below. These will allow your laptop to communicate with the board.

'''Kevin Ford, Gettting Started with the Bibframe Editor (1.5 hours):'''
 
 
Learn about, download, locally install, and tinker with the nascent Bibframe Editor (bfe) (https://github.com/lcnetdev/bfe).  This workshop will provide an introduction to the Bibframe Editor, which, despite its name, is basically a generic, web-based RDF editor.  All forms are dynamically generated from specially defined JSON-formatted [http://www.loc.gov/bibframe/docs/bibframe-profiles.html Bibframe Profiles], which you can customize with your own classes and properties to meet your needs.  `bfe` also ships with a number of "look ups," which provide typeahead functionality that dynamically search remote value vocabularies, such as [http://id.loc.gov/authorities/names Names] and [http://id.loc.gov/authorities/subjects Subjects] in [http://id.loc.gov/ ID.LOC.GOV], and allow you to choose a value from a suggested set of values (you can also create your own look ups).  After a brief introduction about `bfe`, we'll work to install it on your own laptop.  We'll then learn a little about profiles by modifying a few existing ones.  Time permitting, we'll look at creating a new "look up."
 
 
Preparing ahead of time?
 
 
Essential:
 
[http://nodejs.org/download/ node.js] OR [https://www.python.org/download/ Python 2.7]
 
(Do please try to have these installed before the workshop, otherwise we'll spend a minute or two installing node.js.)
 
 
Optional:
 
Git

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.
