The 2010 Code4Lib Conference

Do It Yourself Cloud Computing with Apache and R - Harrison Dekker - Code4Lib 2010

Do It Yourself Cloud Computing with Apache and R

  • Harrison Dekker, University of California, Berkeley, hdekker@library.berkeley.edu

Code4Lib 2010 - Tuesday, February 23 - 11:00-11:20

R is a popular, powerful, and extensible open source statistical analysis application. Rapache, software developed at Vanderbilt University, allows web developers to leverage the data analysis and visualization capabilities of R in real-time through simple Apache server requests. This presentation will provide an overview of both R and rapache and will explore how these tools might be used to develop applications for the library community.

The Linked Library Data Cloud: Stop talking and start doing - Ross Singer - Code4Lib 2010

The Linked Library Data Cloud: Stop talking and start doing

  • Ross Singer, Talis, ross.singer@talis.com

Code4Lib 2010 - Tuesday, February 23 - 10:40-11:00

A year later and how far has Linked Library Data come? With the emergence of large, centralized sources (id.loc.gov/authorities/, viaf.org, among others) entry to the Linked Data cloud might be easier than you think. This presentation will describe various projects that are out in the wild that can bridge the gap between our legacy data and the semantic web, incremental steps we can take modeling our data, why linked data matters and a demonstration of how a small template changes can contribute to the Linked Data cloud.

Cloud4Lib - Jeremy Frumkin and Terry Reese - Code4Lib 2010

Cloud4Lib

  • Jeremy Frumkin, University of Arizona, frumkinj at u library arizona edu

Code4Lib 2010 - Tuesday, February 23 - 10:00-10:20

Major library vendors are creating proprietary platforms for libraries. We will propose that the code4lib community pursue the cloud4lib, a open digital library platform based on open source software and open services. This platform would provide common service layers for libraries, not only via code, but also allow libraries to easily utilize tools and systems through cloud services. Instead of a variety of competing cloud services and proprietary platforms, cloud4lib will attempt to be a unifying force that will allow libraries to be consumer of the services built on top of it as well as allow developers / researchers / code4lib'ers to hack, extend, and enhance the platform as it matures.

Code4Lib 2010 Breakout Sessions

Those interested in the same project/problem can hang out in a space together for 70 minute blocks. Generally the person who suggests the topic will take on the role as moderator to begin and moderate the discussion. Anyone can propose a breakout session - please think about whether you would want a session to be held on Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on the order of talks and who you hope will attend. There are a lot of rooms available each day, including the large meeting room, and we will route different proposed sessions to the different rooms depending on a quick show-of-hands survey just before each one begins.

Breakout Signups moved to the wiki: http://wiki.code4lib.org/index.php/2010_Breakout_Sessions

Code4Lib 2010 Lightning Talks

Lightning talks are scheduled on all three days of the conference. A lightning talk is a fast-paced 5 minute talk on a topic of your choosing.

Needed: volunteer to ensure presentation files get added to this page.

Mark Jason Dominus has a nice page about lightning talks, which includes this summary of why you might want to do one:

Maybe you've never given a talk before, and you'd like to start small. For a Lightning Talk, you don't need to make slides, and if you do decide to make slides, you only need to make three.

Maybe you're nervous and you're afraid you'll mess up. It's a lot easier to plan and deliver a five minute talk than it is to deliver a long talk. And if you do mess up, at least the painful part will be over quickly.

Maybe you don't have much to say. Maybe you just want to ask a question, or invite people to help you with your project, or boast about something you did, or tell a short cautionary story. These things are all interesting and worth talking about, but there might not be enough to say about them to fill up thirty minutes.
