Are you coming to the Open Repositories 2011 conference? If so, you might be interested in the ‘Developers Challenge‘. The theme of the the challenge this year is:
“Show us the future of repositories!”
This competition will be fascinating, as it will allow repository users, managers, and developers to team up in order to show us glimpses of the future, and how repositories will be playing a role in that future.
This year there is an extra prize for the most innovative use of SWORD in an open-repositories context. In order for repositories to be successful, they need to solicit content. How do you see SWORD fitting into that?
Many of the SWORD team members, past and present, including a lot of the current SWORD v2 project developers will be at the conference. If you’d like to talk about SWORD, get a bit of advice about how to prototype with SWORD, or how SWORD could feature in your ‘developers challenge’ submission, come and find one of us for a chat.
Finally, if you’ve not signed up yet but want to come, we’ll be running ‘The SWORD Course‘ again at the conference, between 8am and 12noon on Tuesday June 7th. Email email@example.com if you’d like to join us.
