rdfs:label "Picture This"
dct:description "Picture This! is a one-day workshop taking place at Dev8D+ on 15 February 2011 and run jointly by the Metadata Forum and the Application Profiles Support project. The workshop will bring together developers and non-technical practitioners to explore the issues around image-based metadata. Starting with a programme of lightning talks where participants can share experiences, explain problems and pitch ideas, the day will focus on providing participants with practical solutions to image metadata problems. The workshop offers a unique opportunity for participants from a technical and non-technical background to work together to find ways to improve the delivery of services dealing with images. The event requires no previous experience, just an interest in metadata and images and a willingness to explore working together."

dct:description "Maybe the reason programmers don't write enough documentation is that the[nl]
tools are awful. Wikis and blogging tools are great when you are using them[nl]
for the type of writing they are intended for, but for documentation where[nl]
you need to mix programming languages with the natural kind, they really[nl]
aren't suitable. As a result, documenting code is usually a frustrating[nl]
process that doesn't have the fun of writing code nor the satisfaction of[nl]
writing prose. With Dexy, the integration of code and prose happens[nl]
seamlessly and painlessly, so you can hack example scripts together and[nl]
then write explanations using your favourite tools for each task and[nl]
without ever losing your sense of flow. Dexy's literate approach means that[nl]
it's easy to maintain your documentation over time, and its powerful and[nl]
customizable filter system gives you tremendous control over how you[nl]
present your code. Dexy also makes it easy to re-use your examples, for[nl]
productivity as well as consistency across multiple types of documentation.[nl]
Dexy works beautifully with version control systems and your favourite[nl]
command line tools, and is a great, unobtrusive addition to any[nl]
documentation or computational research workflow.[nl]

In each case the aim is to provide Linked Data according to the principles set out by Tim Berners-Lee, so that we make our data interconnected with other data and contribute to the growth of the Semantic Web.[nl]

The talk will touch on data modelling, the selection of vocabularies and the design of URI patterns. It will look at the practical realities of how we are turning the Archives Hub EAD data and Copac MODS data into RDF XML, and then loading it into triple stores. The talk will conclude with a look at some of the main opportunities and barriers to the creation and use of Linked Data.

dct:description "Clojure is a dynamic programming language that targets the Java Virtual Machine (and the CLR ). It is designed to be a general-purpose language, combining the approachability and interactive development of a scripting language with an efficient and robust infrastructure for multithreaded programming. Clojure is a compiled language - it compiles directly to JVM bytecode, yet remains completely dynamic. Every feature supported by Clojure is supported at runtime. Clojure provides easy access to the Java frameworks, with optional type hints and type inference, to ensure that calls to Java can avoid reflection.[nl]
[nl]
Clojure is a dialect of Lisp, and shares with Lisp the code-as-data philosophy and a powerful macro system. Clojure is predominantly a functional programming language, and features a rich set of immutable, persistent data structures. When mutable state is needed, Clojure offers a software transactional memory system and reactive Agent system that ensure clean, correct, multithreaded designs. See what I did last year http://www.learningclojure.com/2010/01/clojure-dojo-method-of-heron-of.html"

dct:description "Scala is a general purpose, practical, object-oriented/functional-hybrid programming language that runs on the JVM. It's type-safe and has a performance profile very similar to Java, but has the expressiveness of dynamic languages like Ruby and Python. Some Java users are treating it as a "power Java", some are using it as a scalable back-end for other applications (Twitter), some are using it as a half-way house between Java and Python/Ruby. In the workshop, we will look at some of the features of the language, learn the syntax and start using it to build something in a Coding Dojo.[nl]
[nl]
To participate, it is strongly recommended that you download a recent version of the Scala compiler/runtime - 2.7 or 2.8 branch (the version installed by apt-get on Ubuntu or Debian Sid/Squeeze is fine). Familiarity with Java is useful; I've included code sample comparisons to Java, C#, Python and Ruby. For the Coding Dojo, we will be using SciTE on a Linux machine."
