Code4lib DC 2014 and Introduction to Programming Workshop

Connect with fellow code-interested cultural heritage professionals at two side-by-side events: a DC-area code4lib unconference and an introduction to programming workshop.  

The two events are intended to provide an inclusive, welcoming environment, supported by the DLF Code of Conduct. The schedule includes opportunities for the attendees in each track to meet each other, including a plenary opening session, shared lightning talks, Day 2 afternoon unconference events, and combined coffee/lunch/snack breaks. Lunch is on your own, but there are many places nearby to eat. We will provide wireless.

 

These events are sponsored by the Digital Library Federation and the GW Libraries.

 

August 11-12, 2014

Gelman Library, George Washington University

Washington DC

8:30am–5:00pm

About the Workshop

Ready, Set: Code! Introduction to Programming Concepts via jQuery
Instructor: Andromeda Yelton
Room: Gelman Library, Rooms 301/302, 219
 

Students will be introduced to core programming concepts using jQuery code in their browser. The goals of the workshops include demystifying code and building connections among library technologists at different institutions and different levels of skill, by virtue of the workshop being co-located with a code4lib unconference.

 

We encourage you to bring your own laptop, but we will also be able to provide a Chromebook laptop to use if you prefer. You will need either Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox (with the Firebug extension installed), or Safari if you bring your own computer.

 

 

About the Unconference

Join others from libraries, archives, and museums for a participant-driven unconference about the intersection of code and libraries. As typical of unconferences, the content and activities of the day are determined by the attendees. Bring your ideas!
