What: Code4Lib North is a local chapter of the Code4Lib community of
people involved in libraries and technology (see
http://code4lib.org/). North is meant to bring together
librarians, programmers, and other interested people from
Ontario, Quebec, New York, Vermont, and nearby areas.
The annual Code4Lib conference began in 2006. Since then,
several local chapters have started in diferent regions of the
United States, as well as in Japan, Hungary, and the Netherlands.
This is the first Canadian chapter meeting.
Program: Twenty-minute talks and five-minute lightning talks, to be
decided. Anything is possible, including a hackfest.
Registration: There will be a short registration form going up soon, just
to make it easier to count who's coming and what dietary
preferences they have. But there's no cost to attend.
