As some of you might have heard we are planning to revive the DDI Developers Group which has been dormant since 2014. To initiate this revival we plan to host a two days DDI Developers Hackathon from Friday 24th of March until Saturday 25th of March, 2023 at the Swedish National Data Service (SND) in Gothenburg. This event is directly following the Research Data Alliance (RDA) plenary in the same week. Therefore we believe some participants could already be at the location saving travel costs.
Therefore, if you are a developer, software engineer or programmer using or implementing tools around the DDI suite of metadata standards this event might be the chance to exchange ideas with similar people plus during the two days we would like to create some prototypical software implementations of current pain points or needed features for DDI tools.
The event is sponsored by the DDI Alliance, the Swedish National Data Service (SND) and the University of Applied Sciences of the Grisons which will provide catering and the location for the whole event. For a limited number of people also sponsorships for travel costs can be provided if the member organizations cannot sponsor it.
Please treat this mail as a Save-the-Date for this event and forward it to interested technical personnel in your organizations. We will soon follow up with another mail after EDDI containing a link for registration as well as an online document where proposals for topics can be entered.
Thanks in advance.
