Call for Participation/Call for Speakers


Based on our previous discussion in this group, we've put together an agenda for our very first meeting (so excited!).  It's on Saturday, June 23, 2012 - 1:30pm to 3:30pm, at the Doubletree Suites, Tuscany AB.  I hope to see all of you there.  We'll mostly be discussing the direction we'd like to take the group, but we're also looking for speakers for lightning talks:
Call for SpeakersWhat strategies, or roadblocks, have you found in learning to code? How have you used programming to improve library service models or workflows?
The Library Code Year Interest Group seeks speakers for lightning talks (5 minutes) on any aspect of coding and libraries, including projects you have completed, your experience learning to code or thoughts on projects you would like to see in the future.  Our inaugural meeting will be Saturday, June 23, 1:30-3:30 at the Doubletree Suites (Tuscany AB).  Speakers at all levels of coding skill and from all types of library backgrounds are invited to participate.Want to give a talk? Email me (or any of the chairs), or post your ideas here.  Constructive criticism and unbridled enthusiasm from the peanut gallery encouraged!

...if you need it. I could talk about writing bookmarklets, or AJAX, or jQuery, or resources for learning more about JavaScript. Whatever's good.
