The ELUNA Steering Committee is excited to announce that this year’s ELUNA 2018 user conference will feature the third ELUNA Developers Day, which will be on Tuesday, May 1, 2018 in Spokane, WA (immediately prior to the general ELUNA 2018 Annual Meeting).
The Developers Day program brings together librarians and developers to create new and innovative services and solutions for themselves and the broader Ex Libris user community. The goal of the day is to highlight community projects, foster collaborations, and give the ELUNA developer community an opportunity to engage directly with one another and Ex Libris staff.
This year’s event will include longer 30-45 minutes talks and shorter 5-10 minute lightning talks covering a broad range of topics, such as:
- Interoperability and Third-Party Integrations (with Canvas, PeopleSoft, PayPal, Banner, Blackboard, Ares, ILLiad, Browzine, etc.)
- Developing with APIs, Alma/Primo Webhooks, and external Web Services
- Linked Open Data
- Development, Coding, Testing Tools, and Frameworks
- New Primo UI (AngularJS) development
- Development related to Ex Libris Products
- Summon discovery interface customizations and development
- Workflows for shared development
In addition, a breakout space will be available for attendees, who will be able to use this space to work collaboratively with other attendees or Ex Libris staff.
