Developers – We Need You!

Just one day after Valentine’s Day, come and feel the respect we have for you at Picture This!

This one-day workshop being run as part of the Dev8D+ programme of events at ULU, London, on 15th February, is a great chance to work on real-life problems around image metadata, talk to practitioners, help to solve their problems and… feel the respect!

Picture This! is a one-day workshop taking place at Dev8D+ and run jointly by the Metadata Forum and the Application Profiles Support project. The workshop will bring together developers and non-technical practitioners to explore the issues around image-based metadata. Starting with a programme of lightning talks where participants can share experiences, explain problems and pitch ideas, the day will focus on providing participants with practical solutions to image metadata problems. The workshop offers a unique opportunity for participants from a technical and non-technical background to work together to find ways to improve the delivery of services dealing with images. The event requires no previous experience, just an interest in metadata and images and a willingness to explore working together.
