For the Florida Library Association Conference 2017 I again wanted to present a practical session on library technology. Rather than presenting alone, I proposed a panel presentation to get a broader view. My co-presenter for last year’s Code For Every Librarian session, Cheryl Wolfe, quickly joined the panel and then we recruited two more technical librarians. The final panel consisted of:
James M. Day, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
Cheryl Wolfe, Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library
Guy Cicinelli, Florida Gulf Coast University
Jessica Zairo, ByWater Solutions
On June 12, 2015 I gave a short presentation titled Code Every Librarian Should Know at the NEFLIN Library Technology Conference 2015. For the Florida Library Association Conference 2016 I decided to submit a proposal for a longer version of that talk and possibly another on library intranet best practices. Then last Fall I was contacted by Cheryl Wolfe, Web Services Administrator, Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library about collaborating with her on a presentation. I told her about my two ideas and she liked the one teaching code. She renamed the presentation to a friendlier-sounding Code For Every Librarian and our proposal was accepted!
