Empowering the Community Through a Framework for Interest Groups and Working Groups

Robin Ruggaber

Rob Sandersson

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.

Patricia Hswe

Hannah Frost

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.

How can YOU contribute to Sufia?

Adam Wead

Carolyn Cole

Hydramata::Works, Hydramata::Core, and a Little Bit More

Jeremy Friesen

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.20 min presentation
