Hey Chris,
I’ll be at Code4Lib too, although I’m already committed to other sessions for the preconference.

One idea we’ve been batting around here is some sort of messaging system (inspired by Github’s webhooks [1]) which would allow authorized users to activate customizable HTTP callbacks for events, for example creation, modification or deletion of a resource or component. It seems like people have taken a number of approaches to figuring out when data changes in AS, but as far as I know all of these involve some sort of regularly scheduled cron job that looks at the Solr index or makes a ton of API calls. It would be amazing if the system could send notifications out – I think it would allow for much more efficient and flexible integration with other systems.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Code4Lib 2016 events


There was a question shortly before the holidays about some Aspace-related activities at Code4Lib this year in March.

I am planning on attending, and will be at the Code4Arc pre-conf <http://2016.code4lib.org/workshops/Code4Arc/> , which was a great session we had last year at C4L.

I am thinking of also signing up to lead a breakout session one of the days, and might put together something for a lighting talk.

Is anyone else planning on going? Are there some possible ideas that anyone has or would like to see if attending? We might be able to expand on the breakout, if there's critical mass to possibly meet more somewhere.

Best, Chris.
