The core developers of NeXML, CDAO, and PhyloWS will meet two weeks prior to the hackathon to better prepare the participating emerging standards for actual application at the hackathon.

Goals & Targets

Guidelines:

  • Choose a very narrow limited set of goals, and include time to
    • evaluate carefully what we have done
    • extrapolate and plan for the big meeting when we have 20 people to keep busy
  • Need to discuss how to accommodate all the projects using php.

Target ideas:

  • Implement services that would allow Mesquite to query and retrieve character data and trees from TreeBase and from MorphBank.
  • Agreeing on how to implement semantic annotation of metadata types of the providers.
  • More fleshing out of PhyloWS specs.

Information to gather in advance:

  • Implementation details of the providers: which languages/libraries they use, what metadata they want to expose.

Agenda

Coming soon ...
