In order to take advantage of the fact that Code4Lib and Dev8D are happening simultaneously this year, we’re going to try to facilitate a bit of Transatlantic crosstalk. After all, how could thousands of miles, five time zones and a couple trillion gallons of water keep developers apart? Nerdy enthusiasm knows no boundaries.
With these two crowds of innovative and skillful people, there’s no way to fully anticipate how collaboration will occur. As a baseline, we will be arranging the following: daily video updates, daily live chats, regular updates on the MediaShelf blog, and links to other blogs that are reporting on the events.
Dates & Schedules
The two events will only overlap for 2 days – the 24th and 25th of February.
Code4Lib dates: 22nd-25th February
Dev8D dates: 24th-27th February
Hashtags & irc
There are no official twitter hashtags (nor blog/delicious tags) designated for these events. As the excitement ramps up, the tags to watch at first will be
If you read really fast, you could watch all three together.
We will try to keep you posted as new memes and hashtags come to the forefront.
Of course, the real place to witness code4lib chatter is in the #code4lib irc channel.
We’ve created two UStream channels where we will be hosting occasional live feeds and uploading the daily video updates. Check them out and watch for changes: Code4Lib 2010 on UStream & Dev8D 2010 on UStream.
When we decide on the times for hosting the live chats and posting the daily video updates, we will announce the times here and on the UStream channels.
If you would like to contribute your own videos to these channels, create a UStream account, add the videos to your account, and tag the videos with either code4lib2010, dev8d2010, or both. Once you’ve done that, let us know your UStream username and we will add you to the list of contributors. Your videos will then show up on the channels according to which tag you used.
