ELUNA Developers Day+ Overview

Developer’s Day is an event for systems administrators, customizers, and developers to network, show what they have been working on, and learn both from coders at other ELUNA Member institutions and from Ex Libris. It is a community exercise for implementers, by implementers. The schedule allows for participation at different levels of coding ability, so you don’t need to be an expert in order to understand each presentation, and this year there will be hands-on workshops with different levels of coding ability in mind. There will be something here for anyone wishing to build institutional customizations.

Note that there are some attendee requirements. Participants must be ELUNA/IGeLU members. For Primo/Summon, it is useful to have familiarity with basic programming concepts, HTML, JavaScript and a server-side language such as PHP. For Aleph, Alma, and Voyager presentations, attendees should be familiar with administering and supporting those systems.

New for 2019

In response to community feedback, Developers Day 2019 is being expanded to 1.5 days, and will include a half-day of hands-on workshops! Developers Day+ will now begin on the Monday before ELUNA, and will extend through all-day Tuesday.

Program Info

Developers Day brings together librarians and developers to create new and innovative services and solutions. The goal of this event is to highlight community projects, provide opportunities for hands-on learning, and foster collaborations.

This year’s event will include both community presentations and hands-on workshops, covering 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
  • Development, testing tools, and frameworks
  • Primo (AngularJS) development
  • Summon discovery interface customizations and development
  • Workflows for shared development

The hands-on workshops will be oriented towards both novice and experienced developers, and will give attendees the opportunity to work directly with Ex Libris system APIs with the guidance and support of peers.
