DTL Programmers Meeting this Friday

On Friday 18 March DTL will organise the next DTL Programmers Meeting. Speakers from several DTL partners will address topics such as scalability issues and the merits of a proper system of persistent identifiers in Life Sciences.

Date: 18 Mar 2016
Time: 09:00-16:00
Prior knowledge needed? Yes


We have an interesting programme for you, with:

  • An introduction and workshop by DTL Partner SURFsara about the merits of a proper system of persistent identifiers (Handle system) to make data findable and accessible.
  • A lecture on solved scalability issues on a web service dealing with huge data sets (Animo).
  • A lecture on unsolved scalability issues when you suddenly need to add DNA data to existing data bases (CBS-KNAW). Your input is desired!
  • Short presentations and a discussion about experience with modern ‘e-mail replacements’ like Slack.com.

Please find more information about the full programme here.

Meeting before the plenary session
Three groups have already indicated that they will be meeting at the venue before the plenary session (we open at 9:00):

  • Mateusz Kuzak will use the big room for an update meeting about software carpentry.
  • Rob Hooft will be having a side meeting with some people on how to couple genomic data to another data collection.
  • Some people will discuss planning for BBMRI-2.

If you want to attend the meeting, we would like to ask you to register via the wiki; this will help us to order the right amount of sandwiches for lunch. You can also send an e-mail to Rob Hooft (rob.hooft[at]dtls.nl) if you do not have a wiki login.
