A message to those who plan to attend the Code4Arc pre-conference:
Thanks for your interest in this pre-conference! The content and the
structure of the day will depend on who attends and what they express
interest in, but we have started a planning document with an agenda to get
the ball rolling:
Please check there for a sense of what is planned for the day and to add
your comments or suggestions.
There you will also find links there to install the three tools currently
being discussed: Archivematica, ArchivesSpace and BitCurator. We will have
demos available on laptops, but if you prefer to sandbox on your own
machine we highly recommend downloading and installing the tool(s) that
interest you ahead of time.
We encourage tweeting during the pre-conference with both the #c4l15
hashtag as well as the hashtag #code4arc .
Looking forward to seeing you in Portland!

> Please consider joining us at Code4Arc in Portland! This Code4Lib
> pre-conference will try in one day to do for archives what Code4Lib does
> for libraries. We'd like to talk about open-source software for archives
> and how development is impacted by the archival community and vice-versa.
> We plan to do this through:
> - tool demos (currently ArchivesSpace, Archivematica/AtoM and BitCurator)
> - user panels (sharing user stories and case studies)
> - breakout sessions (for mini hackathons, requirements gathering, etc).
> We plan to run Code4Arc for the full pre-conference day, but participation
> for just the morning or just the afternoon is ok too. You can read more
> about the pre-conference and sign up here:
> Beyond attendance, please consider participating by giving a demo of your
> open-source archives tools or systems, presenting a case study or sitting
> on a panel discussion. You can help us plan by getting in touch with me off
