Dear all,


Thanks for the early responses.  At the moment we have expressions of
interest from:


GBIF: Tim and Burke

Costa Rica: ?

Sao Paulo: 2-3 people

France: tentative 1 person?


In discussion with GBIF (Tim R) we believe that this would be enough to make
some good progress.  


Can I please ask that we have a confirmation by the 17th June of a
commitment to attend?


With this, we will begin arranging the workshop and logistics, and people
can book flights etc.


(GBIF (TR and BK) have confirmed attendance should this proceed)

Subject: Proposed workshop in Canberra - July 2014

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
