Going to ALA? You're invited.
25 June 2009
If you're headed to ALA Annual, the American Library Association conference 2009 in Chicago in a couple of weeks, we'd love to see you at the OCLC Developer Network luncheon and the OCLC blog salon. You're invited. OCLC Developer Network Luncheon Sunday, July 12 12:00 noon-1:30 pm InterContinental Hotel, Toledo Room 505 North Michigan Avenue. Join fellow developers and tech enthusiasts for an informal luncheon. Hear an update about the OCLC Developer Network, the latest Web services and APIs available from OCLC (including authentication services like EZproxy). Brainstorm about new ways to enrich your users' experience with additional data. You'll need to register for it, please. If you're planning to attend and would like to show off your latest code, drop us a note! OCLC Blog Salon Sunday, July 12 5:30-8:00 pm Chicago Hilton, Boulevard Room C ( 2nd floor) 720 South Michigan Avenue. OCLC bloggers have joined forced with the OCLC Developer Network to host the Blog Salon this year. The Shanachies are going to be the special guests, (along with Michael and Jenny) at the LITA President's Program at ALA this year, and then we'll continue the fun at the OCLC Blog Salon. So the Shanachies (Erik Boekesteijn, Jaap van de Geer, Geert van den Boogaard) will have all their video equipment at the Blog Salon--so come out and meet them and other like-minded bloggers, tweeters, 'tubers, coders, developers and generally anyone interested in tech/social/outreach/frivolity. You may be in the next Shanachie movie! The Blog Salon is sponsored by OCLC bloggers (official and less so) and the OCLC Developer Network. Note: even if you're not planning to attend ALA, you can still participate in the Developer Network luncheon via WebEx. I'll post information on how to join in, closer to time.
