Hi David


That is good news. We really need to get more in contact with you all to move faster on our customization of ALA.


We plan to have some people (2 or 3) attending the workshop.

Hello all,


There have been a couple of approaches to the team at ALA asking for the possibility of a visit to help advance understanding of the system.  Additionally we hear early indications of interest from the recent group who had a small workshop in Europe, but note their requests for improved documentation, processes and structure.


It is short notice but we would like to propose a workshop in Canbera for developers on the week of :  21-July - 25th July 2014


During this week we would aim to:

a) exchange knowledge amongst developers

b) collate wiki documentation on data management, and customization of the web portal

c) discuss and make progress in the processes surrounding source code management - e.g. potentially moving to Github and defining procedures for contribution, and releases


Please note that at this stage and for the foreseeable future, we believe the components suitable for collaboration and adoption are:

i. The biocache-hub webapp

ii. The collectory webapp

iii. The biocache backend processes


I understand that the GBIF secretariat will commit to managing the key pieces of documentation and assist in helping structure the project.  The ALA development team are committed to maintaining this codebase and using it to support applications in Australia. We don't envisage this being an off the shelf product such as the GBIF IPT, but rather a well managed open source project that people can contribute to and use as a framework to rapidly kick start their own developments.


If you have interest in joining, could you please reply to this expressing interest, even if only tentative? 


Many thanks,


Dave Martin
