The Developer's Network will be hosting a luncheon on Sunday, Jan. 25 at ALA Midwinter.
This would be your chance to join fellow developers and tech enthusiasts for an informal luncheon...except we're already at capacity. Who knew there would be so many people attending a conference in Denver in January?
But never fear, we'll post a summary of the discussion and photos of the meeting right here, after the fact. There will be a presentation on all the new activities going on with OCLC Grid Services, and guest speakers will share what they've created:
- Holly Eggleston from UCSD will share the latest on EZproxy authentication with Shibboleth
- Larry Henry from ERIC will discuss ERIC's implementation of WorldCat and Find in a Library
- Karen Coombs from the University of Houston will go over the Wordpress plugin for WorldCat
We invite other participants to bring their apps or sample code to share with the group in this informal, open-discussion setting. New this conference is also a poster gallery of sample Grid Services mash-ups and applications that members of the Developer's Network have created.
We're excited to share these innovative uses of the OCLC developer tools available -- and look forward to brainstorming with you in 2009 about new ways to build on the world’s richest library resource.
If you're going to ALA, we'll see you in Denver. You may also want to sign-up and attend the OCLC Update Breakfast on Sunday, Jan. 25 from 7-9 a.m.
