Code4Lib is an annual, volunteer-organized conference focused on the intersection of technology and cultural heritage. DPLA is participating heavily in  Code4Lib 2015, taking place on February 9 – 12 in Portland, Oregon. Here’s a handy guide detailing some of the key places they’ll be and how you can connect with them.

  • Monday, February 9 (9 AM – noon): Tom Johnson (DPLA Metadata and Platform Architect) will lead a Linked Data Workshop with Karen Estlund (University of Oregon).
  • Monday, February 9 (1:30 – 4:30 PM): Tom Johnson, Mark Matienzo (DPLA Director of Technology), Mark Breedlove (DPLA Technology Specialist), Audrey Altman (DPLA Technology Specialist), Gretchen Gueguen (DPLA Data Services Coordinator), and Amy Rudersdorf (DPLA Assistant Director for Content) will lead an introductory workshop on the DPLA API.
  • Wednesday, February 11 (4:30 PM): Audrey Altman, Mark Breedlove, and Gretchen Gueguen will present on DPLA’s new ingestion system. The presentation is entitled, “Heiðrún: DPLA’s Metadata Harvesting, Mapping and Enhancement System.”

Beyond these formal opportunities to connect, these folks are eager to chat and answer questions about timely topics including the Community Reps application, DPLAfest 2015, and DPLA’s recent work upgrading its ingestion system.

In addition to staff participation, and in keeping with DPLA’s broader commitment to diversity, DPLA has also supported Code4Lib 2015 by helping to sponsor one of the Code4Lib 2015 Diversity Scholarships as part of the Code4Lib community.
