Open Repositories 2015 DEVELOPER TRACK
June 8-11, 2015, Indianapolis, Indiana, http://www.or2015.net
*** Deadline 13th March 2015 ***

Cool Tools, Daring Demos and Fab Features

The OR2015 developer track presents an opportunity to share the latest
developments across the technical community. We will be running informal
sessions of presentations and demonstrations showcasing community
expertise and progress:

- What cool development tools, frameworks, languages and technologies
could you not get on without?

- Is there a particular technique or process that you find apt for solving
particular day-to-day repository problems?  Demonstrate it to the
community.  Extra credit for command-line shenanigans and live debugging.

- What new features (however small) have you added to your organisation¹s
repository?  What technologies were used and how did you arrive at your

Presentations will be flexibly timed (5 to 20 minutes). Live demos, code
repositories, ssh, hacking and audience participation are encouraged.

Submissions should take the form of a title and short paragraph detailing
what will be shared with the community (including the specific platform
and/or technologies you will be showcasing). Please also give an estimate
of the duration of your demonstration.

Submit your proposal here: https://www.conftool.com/or2015/ by March 13,

** Ideas Challenge **

The Developer Challenge this year has been replaced by the more inclusive
IDEAS CHALLENGE. We would like to encourage teams to form before and
during the conference to propose an innovative solution to a real-world
problem that repository users currently face.  Each team should include
members from both the developer and user community, and represent more
than one institution.

Teams¹ ideas will be presented to the conference and prizes will be
awarded based on the nature of the problem, the quality of the solution
and the make-up of the team. Find out more at
