Full Description

This is the Summer meeting of Code4LibNYC, a group open to anyone interested in the coding, deployment, and design of library software, systems, and web services. This local chapter of Code4Lib, known as Code4LibNYC, aspires to channel the spirit of the national organization. We want to provide a forum for software and web developers and programmers, who work at area libraries, to discuss their ongoing projects.

Anyone interested in libraries, technology, and their intersection.

By the end of this program, participants will:

  • Learn about the DH (or Digital Humanities) Box at Hunter, a portable, customized linux environment for Digital Humanities learners
  • See how Lyrasis Digital has been using Ansible for automating server and application deployment
