Lots of great content, especially in the Lucene, Solr, and Hadoop areas.
Please help us pick the keynote addressees for code4lib2009 in February. If you have even the remotest intention of attending the conference please take some time to cast your vote! Join us in irc://freenode.net/code4lib for the play-by-play from zoia ...
A few people decided to fix the existing bugs in the solr python client and release it with unit tests, and some more documentation...and make it available via the Cheeseshop. To support this the solrpy Google Code project was created. There probably won't be tons of changes but if you use python and solr together you might be interested in using it, and subscribing to the discussion list.
We want to introduce you to a new group convening in the NYC area: Code4LibNYC.
We are aspiring to start a local version of the Code4lib national organization. We want to provide a forum where library technologists can share information about library technology and discuss their current projects. Our group is open to all library staff interested in the coding, deployment, and design of library software, systems, and web services.
I received the following email today, which is in reference to the Code4Lib group on LinkedIn:
First of all, thank you for your management of your group on LinkedIn.
In the past few weeks, we've made some changes with Groups. We introduced a new searchable directory in July, and last Thursday, we made some changes to the group management tools.
Ever since Ed Summers (edsu) created the LinkedIn group for Code4Lib, requests to join have been flooding in. We're now at 210 members, but it hasn't shown many signs of slowing down yet. I try to get to the requests to join on a regular basis, but with vacation and all if you don't get accepted right away feel free to send me an email.
Registration for the conference, to be held in Toronto June 25-27 2008 is now open. To find out more about the meeting, to register, or to learn about accommodations and travel options, please visit our website at: http://www.elpub.net
