Code4Lib 2009 Breakout Sessions

Those interested in the same project/problem can hang out in a space together for 70 minute blocks. Generally the person who suggests the topic will take on the role as moderator to begin and moderate the discussion. Anyone can propose a breakout session - please think about whether you would want a session to be held on Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on the order of talks and who you hope will attend. There are five rooms available each day, including the large meeting room, and we will route different proposed sessions to the different rooms depending on a quick show-of-hands survey just before each one begins.

This page will list any sessions proposed before the conference itself, but there will also be flip charts outside the meeting room where more sessions can be proposed.

Code4Lib 2009 Schedule

All conference events listed below will take place at the Renaissance Providence Hotel. Some pre-conferences may take place on the Brown University campus.

2009 Pre-Conferences

We have 8 pre-conferences for code4lib2009 -- 2 full day and 6 half day. The plan is to charge a flat $25 pre-conference fee to cover room and break costs. Plan to arrive at morning sessions beginning at 8:30 am, and afternoon sessions beginning at 1.

Two 12-passenger shuttles circling between the Renaissance and Brown will run 7:45-9:45, 11:45-1:45, 4:15-6:15. Some may prefer to walk; allow at least 20 minutes for the 1 mile walk to the John Hay Library, or 30 minutes for the 1.5 miles to the Inn at Brown. Maps will be available.

drupal4lib unconference (02/27/2009 Darien, CT)

Darien Library will be hosting a Drupal4Lib Camp on Friday, February 27, 2009 from 9 am to 4 pm. It just so happens this is the day after code4lib2009 ends in nearby Providence, RI -- so you can theoretically hop on over after code4lib proper ends.

The camp will be an opportunity for libraries who are working with Drupal, or interested in implementing Drupal, to get together, share experiences, solve problems, and collaborate. This unconference will be a combination of a series of 10 min lightning talks given by Drupal veterans in the morning followed by break-out sessions in the afternoon.

Audio and video from Drupal4Lib Camp sessions will also be streamed lived online. There is no registration fee. However, participation is limited to 70. Please register for the Drupal4Lib Camp.
