solrpy google code project

A few people decided to fix the existing bugs in the solr python client and release it with unit tests, and some more documentation...and make it available via the Cheeseshop. To support this the solrpy Google Code project was created.

Code4LibNYC

We want to introduce you to a new group convening in the NYC area: Code4LibNYC.

We are aspiring to start a local version of the Code4lib national organization. We want to provide a forum where library technologists can share information about library technology and discuss their current projects. Our group is open to all library staff interested in the coding, deployment, and design of library software, systems, and web services.

Update from LinkedIn

I received the following email today, which is in reference to the Code4Lib group on LinkedIn:

First of all, thank you for your management of your group on LinkedIn.

In the past few weeks, we've made some changes with Groups. We introduced a new searchable directory in July, and last Thursday, we made some changes to the group management tools.

LinkedIn Group Growing Fast

Ever since Ed Summers (edsu) created the LinkedIn group for Code4Lib, requests to join have been flooding in. We're now at 210 members, but it hasn't shown many signs of slowing down yet. I try to get to the requests to join on a regular basis, but with vacation and all if you don't get accepted right away feel free to send me an email.

Brown University to Host Code4Lib 2009

By now pretty much everyone knows (since it was announced at Code4Lib 2008), but in the interest of the historical record, let it show that Brown University will be hosting Code4Lib 2009. They submitted the winning proposal that will bring all library coders who can make it to Providence, Rhode Island in February 2009. We hope to see you there!
