Code4Lib Northwest connects innovators and problem solvers so they can share information about projects, trends and technologies. Most importantly, it seeks to develop a community where people share information and experience and collaborate on work towards common goals. You don't have to be a programmer to attend, but you shouldn't be surprised if a couple presenters toss a little illustrative code on the screens.
If you weren't able to attend last year or are unfamiliar with the format, you're in for a treat. Mix it up with some the best library technologists in the PNW! If you want to find out what people are up to, this is the place.
The Code4Lib Northwest meeting is a one day conference in traditional Code4Lib style. It will feature a series of 20 minute sessions and two periods of lightning talks. By keeping the group size low and presentations short in a highly interactive environment, it's easy for busy people to share their ideas so you get to learn about what really interests you.
In preparation for Code4Lib PNW, a small number of presentations have been pre-solicited and are available with the draft schedule here:
Ideas for 20 minute presentations can be submitted to http://goo.gl/cTp3H A laptop with an internet connection and a data projector will be provided.
ATTENDEES AND REGISTRATION:
Code4Lib Northwest 2011 event will be capped at 60 participants. Early registration is $60 (after April 29, it becomes $75), and lunch as well as refreshments throughout the day will be provided. The price has risen due to increased costs for putting on the conference.
