Code4Lib Midwest programming depends on the folks attending the conference. Please consider giving a presentation or lightning talk, or submitting your ideas for the hackfest.
+
 
+
Share what you are working on! Add your name and a description below. Please also let us know how long you'll need, and whether you prefer Wednesday or Thursday (or if it doesn't matter)
+
 
+
===Presentations or Workshops===
+
Have something cool to share? Tell us about it. If you want someone to teach something to you, put that here as well.
+
 
+
* Eric Echeverri and Steve Lonn on the digital open badges initiative that is taken place at the University of Michigan, specifically Digital Badges for libraries. Steve Lonn will be joining us via Gtalk for an in depth understanding of this technology. Eric will go over the technical details of exporting badges into the Mozilla backpack for learners. This application is done in ruby and is up and running at [https://mblem.umich.edu https://mblem.umich.edu]
+
* Development tips from the front-lines: Tips and techniques useful for software development in Libraries. Jon Gorman, University of Illinois (at Urbana-Champaign). Last year's Code4Lib Midwest there was a great amount of interest in improving development skills. Jon doesn't claim to be the best developer, but he's will to share what intimidated him unnecessarily and useful tips & tricks for both improving skills and overview of techniques that make life easier. (Bootstrap, jQuery, Rule engines, templates, Good books to read, etc). (Note: I'm willing to bump this down to a very quick lightning talk if people aren't interested, I just thought the schedule looked like it needed some fleshing out).
+
* Can you do FOSS at your library if you're a small, one-person shop? How do you figure it out? Megan Kudzia, Albion College Library. I've made plenty of mistakes along the way, and I thought maybe others might find what I've figured out useful. As a community that values free/open source, it can be really difficult to assess if you're starting out in your career and you're pretty much "the technology person" at your library (I suspect there are a lot of us in this boat). In addition to mistakes, I've had some successes too, which I'll also share about - it's not all bad news! (Note: like Joh, I'm willing to bump this down to a lightning talk if folks aren't really interested).
+
* CANCELLED (sorry) Deploy Code with Confidence (with lots of tests and application monitoring). Jeremy Prevost, Northwestern University
+
* Chicago Collections Consortium (CCC), XTF admin tool development --  The CCC is creating a unified portal to access archival collections relating to Chicago at a variety of institutions. The consortium has chosen XTF to search and index the metadata.  Our first order of business is to create an admin tool that can ingest any metadata from home institutions and create standardized metadata to allow discovery of related material across institutions.  Development of the tool began in May.  I'll give an overview of what we're doing from a technical stand point and update about where we are and what our difficulties have been.  Esther Verreau, UIC

+
===Lightning Talks===
+
