Dev8D: Day Two

  1. Despite a late night at the event social, participants were hard at work sharing ideas first thing in the morning…
  2. #dev8d been here under an hour… learning so much that stuff is falling out the other side of head already
  3. #dev8d in the Kinect workshop, learnt loads so far, and we’re only 7 minutes in!
  4. Participants got cracking with their challenge submissions:
  5. I did an iPhone app for the #dev8d challenge. knackered now. nice change, since I mainly do mobile web stuff
  6. Our (me, @nwe23 and @davejessop) #Dev8D Elsevier SciVerse Challenge entry: gist.github.com/832019
  7. The lightning talks continued:
  8. Gave lightning talks about the new app developed for Elsevier Challenge, for the #metadata used in our @Landmap service in #Dev8D #light
  9. And emotions flew high….
  10. The eBeams up and running! Hurrah 😀 and the lasers are nearly calibrated! #dev8d #proj excitement
  11. It’s offical, I may be in love with the @mollyproject #dev8d #wk
  12. …But emotions were not the only things flying high:
  13. The Dev8D philosophy dictated that all problems were opportunities:
  14. the Great Internet Outage of #dev8d led to a new @dexyit feature – if you lose internet access dexy will use cached files (will be in 0.2.1)
  15. …And participants continued to have a go at a wide range of tools and technologies:
  16. Hi! I’m trying CKAN and uploaded the #dev8d programme RDF into is.gd/ZJzuUG now learning what to do with it once is there!!!
  17. Currently sparqling @archiveshub rdf in instance of Fuseki triple store installed on laptop courtesy of @GKlyne ‘s #dev8d rdf workshop
  18. Making valuable connections in the process:
  19. importance of context in linguistics reminds me of the concepts behind openurl #dev8d
  20. The feedback from the whole event was great.  Here is just a small selection of the comments…
