This workshop is an ideal opportunity to learn how to get involved in the Hydra community or how to start using Hydra technologies. It is also an opportunity to learn about the innovative approaches our community has taken to the social mechanics of (open source) repository systems. The tone will be one of informal exchange of ideas and solutions. In the spirit of open, collaborative exchange of ideas and solutions, the content of this workshop will be equally appropriate for people with technical/developmental and design/managerial backgrounds. Participants are encouraged to bring their laptops.
Throughout the week of OR11 there will be many presentations about Hydra. The emphasis of the preconference workshop will be to give you a sense of the community behind all of this exciting work and to give you ample opportunity to ask questions and get in-depth answers.
