Technology Speed-Dating at ALA Annual in Las Vegas

The LITA/ALCTS Library Code Year Interest Group is hosting a   technology speed-dating event during their session at ALA Annual 2014 in Las Vegas on Saturday June 28th from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m.!

LCY wants you to be a part of the technology speed-dating.

What is technology speed-dating anyway? Part informational, part discussion, completely useful. Several experts will be stationed around the meeting room and talk about a specific topic, software, piece of code, programming language, etc., to attendees for a set amount of time and then they will rotate to a different expert until the time ends. While the LCY IG session is 90 minutes total, the technology speed-dating will be 60 minutes and is meant to be a more casual, conversational, learning experience.

What are you knowledgeable in? Using Python or Ruby, Drupal or WordPress? Have you written a useful script? Can you explain a code snippet to non-techies well? Have you modified a Kinect or some other hardware for library purposes? Sign up to share your knowledge and experiences as an expert for the Library Code Year Interest Group technology speed-dating!

Email LCY Co-Chairs Emily Flynn, emilyflynn (at) me.com, or        Chris Strauber, chris.strauber (at) tufts.edu, by May 15th with your idea(s) to sign up to be an expert for the technology speed-dating or for more information. Also, please consider telling someone you know going to ALA Annual, and are possibly thinking of right now, who would be a great expert too!
