A pre-Code4Lib PNW get together for folks to get together, have a
drink and chat.
The code4lib Conference was born in a chatroom discussion in November
2005*. Code4lib members quickly coalesced around the idea and a
popular, annual conference for library technologist and developers was
born. The Pacific Northwest Code4Lib group was formed to build upon
the original goals of the group/conference. It aims to connect
developers so they can share information about projects, trends and
technologies. Most importantly, it seeks to develop a community where
people share information and experience and collaborate on work
towards common goals.
The Code4Lib Northwest meeting will be a one day conference in
traditional Code4Lib style. It will feature approximately 8 20 minute
sessions, and two periods (a morning and late afternoon) consisting of
lightning talks. The facilities and the size should help keep the
meeting cozy, and, with luck, everyone that wants to participate (do a
lightning talk) will have the opportunity.
In preparation for Code4Lib PNW, a small group of presentations have
been pre-solicited and are available with the draft schedule here:
