Subject: Special Developer Profiles on Europeana, DPLA, and DigitalNZ

Dear Code4Libbers,

Some of you may have seen and some of you have even graciously contributed
to the EuropeanaTech <http://pro.europeana.eu/structure/europeana-tech>
developers spotlight column called "Who's Using What
<http://labs.europeana.eu/blog?tag=floss>?". We are pleased to announce
over the next few weeks we have the privilege to feature interviews with
the dev teams from Europeana <http://www.europeana.eu>, DigitalNZ
<http://www.digitalnz.org/> and DPLA <http://dp.la/> plus a few other
possible surprises.

You can read the first feature with Chris McDowall
<https://twitter.com/fogonwater/> from DigitalNZ <http://www.digitalnz.org/>
here
<http://labs.europeana.eu/blog/who-s-using-what-chris-mcdowall-and-digitalnz-developer-profile>.


"Who's Using What" provides cultural heritage and digital humanities
coders, hackers, and developers the platform to talk about their work,
share their favorite OS tools to utilize as well as the ones they're
developing themselves for us all to play around with. Of course we also
want to peek and see what the future holds for these dev teams and what
they'd like to see more of within the sector.

Interested in contributing? Drop me a line! We'd love to hear what you're
working on.

Interested in OS software in cultural heritage, libraries and digital
humanities? Check out our past interviews here

Enjoy and cheers!

Hey folks,
We've got some limited funding available to help support a number of
workshops over the next 18 months and we're looking for volunteers willing
to lead 1.5 hour hands-on workshops. Please take a minute to fill out the
below form if you're interested.

Thanks!

LODLAM Workshop Leaders Interest Form
We’re seeking volunteers to run workshops at a number of key conferences
throughout 2015-16 designed to teach the basics of Linked Open Data in
Libraries, Archives and Museums LODLAM. In doing so, we hope to strengthen
a growing community of practitioners willing and able to build upon shared
cultural heritage and scientific data. The expectation is that we can
assemble and share the workshop plans and content to enable more and more
people to host and teach them over time.

In particular, we’re looking for people to teach tools in 1.5 hr sessions
with real data that address the following 4 categories:
--Big picture view: Introduce the basic concepts of LODLAM integrating
examples of what people are already doing with it.
--Cleaning: Use Open Refine to clean and reconcile datasets to make them
more usable for the public.
--Publishing: Demonstrate ways that people can publish datasets in the
library/archive/museum space - from publishing CSV’s and posting datasets
in Github to rdf’izing in Open Refine or using triplestores.
--Reusing and Building: Teach SPARQL as well as open source tools used to
visualize single or multiple collections.

Let us know if you can help!

Please contact Jon Voss ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>), Ethan Gruber (
[log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>), or Anne Gaynor ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>) if you have any
