The 20:51 sprint (Roadmap team-building: UK edition)

This week we hosted the DMPTool team to flesh out our plans for ‘roadmap’ – the joint codebase we’re building together based on DMPonline and DMPTool. The key focus was reviewing and prioritising tasks for an initial release.  Building on discussions from the earlier US visit, we confirmed what work was to be done and agreed to begin with some well-defined, short tasks as a test of our co-development procedures. With everyone taking leave over the coming weeks, the first sprint will start in mid-July at which point we’ll begin adding documentation to the Github repository.

IDCC16 Birds of a Feather sessions - what, why, how

We're running BoFs - Birds of a Feather sessions - again at this year's International Digital Curation Conference after trying them for the first time in London for IDCC15. We learned some lessons from doing that, and as a result we've changed the process. The main thing we learned, however, was that not enough people understood what these sessions were for and how to take part in them. This news item explains that, and the new process. It's also your opportunity to propose BoF sessions and start generating interest in your proposals.

This post was updated on Thursday February 18th with corrected information.
