Test-Driven Development

Test-driven development is the hallmark of a good Rubyist and Rails developer.  While everyone acknowledges that it can be difficult to do well, there are lots of great resources for Rails developers.  But what about Hydra developers?  This workshop aims to provide some basic Hydra-centric testing principles and methods that can be used in the context of any Hydra application.  This workshop hopes to present a core set of templates and strategies that developers can use as a basis for writing their tests.  Opinions and discussion is greatly welcomed.  Bring your questions and your code.

Hydra For Managers Workshop

Room: Kelvin Smith Library - LL06-B&C

How to migrate a Hydra head from one version of Hydra to another (not just previous to next version)?  What to expect, what to look out for?

Hydra is a great toolkit for rapidly creating digital repository software. What is it like after initial development ceases? Share your experiences with two seasoned Hydra developers. We’ll talk about what is easy, what isn’t, and what we can do about it.  Topics will include updating Hydra’s stack components including Solr and Fedora, as well as its related gems such as Active Fedora.

How to manage agile development

Agile is based on self-organizing cross-functional teams addressing evolving requirements and delivering solutions incrementally. Adaptive planning and continuous improvement make Agile teams highly flexible and able to rapidly respond to change. Participants in this workshop will learn about the principles and benefits of Agile and will engage in core Agile activities that they can take back to their own teams.

2 presentations

Slot 1: What does Fedora (do for the Hydra stack)? and Why is Fedora 4 a good option for my needs? (Andrew Woods, Esmé Cowles) F4-Hydra-Connect-stack-2014-10-02.pdf

This session will discuss some of the features that are new in Fedora 4 that will undoubtedly send dazzles up the Hydra stack.

Slot 2: Running Hydra in a small (1-dev) shop (Adam Wead, Richard Green) Hydra in a one-man shop- v01 - 140910.pdf

Some have the impression that running a Hydra system requires a significant team of developers. In fact, there are a number of institutions running Hydra that are "one-developer shops". This talk will explore the pros and cons.

Session Chair: Tom Cramer

Room: Thwing Center - Ballroom

Slot 1: Empowering the Community Through a Framework for Interest Groups and Working Groups (Robin Ruggaber, Rob Sandersson) HC2 - Working Groups-3.pptx

Do you ever wonder what working groups exist in the Hydra community or what topics are being discussed or how to spark a discussion or a working group? We are proposing a framework for interest groups and working groups which has proven effective in other successful communities toward raising awareness, connecting members with common interests, spawning action oriented working groups and making time at face to face meetings in support of both "percolating" ideas and heads down work. Join us to explore how this framework can further empower our community.

Slot 2: One Year with Hydra: what we know now; what we wish we knew earlier (Glen Horton, Thomas Scherz) ( First Year Experience - UC.pptx, Narration online)

Our first year of developing a Hydra-based institutional repository yielded many surprises, frustrations, and eureka moments.  We will tell you what we wish someone had told us about the Hydra community, Rails applications, System/Stack deployment, and Developer collaboration.

Session Chair: Chris Awre

Room: Kelvin Smith Library - Dampeer

Slot 1: How can YOU contribute to Sufia? (Adam Wead and Carolyn Cole)

The session will give an overview of the Sufia gem, our coding style and testing conventions.  Part of this process is also how we use Github to register issues, then submit pull requests to elicit feedback from the community.  Once approved, the pull requests become part of the codebase.  We also touch briefly on how Sufia works as a gem within another application and the overriding process.

Slot 2: Hydramata::Works, Hydramata::Core, and a Little Bit More (Jeremy Friesen) (Link to presentation)

A year and some change ago, Northwestern, Notre Dame, and DCE embarked on a shared development project: the Curate gem. During that year the University of Virginian, University of Cincinnati, and Indiana University joined the project. The collaboration was illuminating. Sharing software is hard. Developing software together is hard. Hydramata::Works and Hydramata::Core is a measured response to both the experience of shared development and Notre Dame's internal experience updating our own Hydra applications.

Room: Thwing Center - Ballroom

60 min Panel: Toward a Toolbox: Common Approaches to Service Management for a Production Hydra Head

In the last few years, as the Hydra partnership has grown to encompass twenty-five institutions, management of services for Hydra heads in production has become a topic of recurring interest and concern. What are the basic goals and requirements for successful service management of Hydra-based technologies? What roles need to be in place? How should user services be fostered and assessed? This panel session, conducted by three service managers from three different institutions, will address some common approaches to inform the start of a community toolbox for service management of a production Hydra head.

Slot 1: Converting Metadata to Linked Data (Karen Estlund) linkeddata_hydraconnect_2014.pptx

Overview of Oregon Digital processes to convert existing metadata to linked data.

Slot 2: Hydra on top of Fedora 4? A review of technical progress and strategies to date (Justin Coyne) (Slides)

This session will discuss community developments from institutions which have embarked on initial piloting of Hydra over Fedora 4.

Slot 3: How to migrate from Fedora 3 to 4 (Adam Wead) (Presentation)

Fedora 4 introduces many new capabilities and opportunities. As a result, the content structure and modeling has undergone significant change from the Fedora 3.x line. This session will discuss some of the considerations in upgrading from a Fedora 3.x repository to Fedora 4.
