A couple weeks ago, during Open Repositories 2012, Penn State announced that they had opened registration for this year’s HydraCamp. The slots quickly filled, and 48 hours later the wait list was 8 people deep. We are working to open up a couple more slots, so if you haven’t registered but hope to attend, visit […]

I’ve posted my last videos to the Code4Lib & Dev8D 2010 channel on Vimeo. (NB: the Dev8D responses are all on YouTube, not Vimeo). We only had a half day on Thursday but I managed to run around and gather enough video for one montage of hello messages and three mini-interviews. I convinced Thursday’s emcee […]
Among the highlights of dev8D are the developer challenges. Last year, List8D took home the £5,000 first prize at the Developer Decathlon. This year, there are ten different challenges, or bounties. Mahendra Mahey explained that last year’s single grand prize format left a number of otherwise deserving innovation efforts unrecognized. As a result, this year’s […]
