[EP-tech] ORCID Jisc events - Last few places remaining



I?m hoping that the following events are of interest to members of this list - we?d love to see members of the eprints community at both events
----------
There are still a few places remaining on the two upcoming Jisc events for the UK ORCID consortium.  Please register asap to secure your place.  We would welcome non-developers to join the hackday so they can offer the user perspective to teams undertaking developments.

A full day event to explore use cases, requirements and opportunities for working with data accessed through the ORCID API. The aim will be to deepen our understanding of the capabilities of the ORCID API and to think about the opportunities it presents for use cases involving interaction with other institutional systems.
This will be of interest both to developers (even if they are unfamiliar with ORCID) and also to anyone with an interest in understanding and influencing how ORCID data can be used.
 
There will be two intersecting strands, recognising that some community members may be more interested in one than the other:
 
Strand 1 - Introduction to the ORCID API ? aimed at software developers and those potentially responsible for development projects. This will be a mixture of tutorial and hands-on exercises. Content covered will include topics like the types of ORCID API and test environments, using the API for searching and retrieving records, getting authenticated ORCID IDs, obtaining access and permission to amend records, creating records, API resources and support available.  Some more in-depth topics may be offered depending on demand and experience of those attending. Please check the requirements and preparation found after the agenda
 
Strand 2 - Using ORCID - definition of Use Cases.  The use cases will be built upon prior suggestions (such as from community events) and/or suggestions on the day; they will provide key inputs, both for the October Hack Day (see below) and to share with system vendors and user groups. Different sessions will include brainstorming, voting and refining and revising the final list of candidates (see table below).
 
The day will be supported by facilitators from universities and from the Jisc team.
 
Note ? The Jisc team will be planning separate days for those who want to address system specific interoperability requirements.

*Requirements and Preparation for Strand one: tutorial on ORCID API
Requirements:
Strand One (tutorial) is open to developers and non-developers, although participants are expected to be familiar with XML and basic web technologies such as HTTP.  A laptop with a web browser is needed.
Preparation:
To gain the most from the tutorial it would be beneficial if participants are familiar with the following content.  The suggested resources to read or view should help you fill in any gaps.
1. Familiarity with obtaining an ORCID record (as a user). Familiarity - from a user perspective - with: registering with ORCID;  an example of a record including all the different sections it can contain; setting user privacy and the different levels; dealing with record duplication; understanding that the user owns the record and is in control of granting permissions.  Covered in 3:00 to 14:30 minutes of: https://vimeo.com/144151464
2.  ORCID Integration overview
Five basic processes of integration: Get a user's ORCID ID, get data from an ORCID record; enable import from your system, Link to your system's user profile. Create on Demand
Go through the prezi here:  Orcid.org/organizations/integrators BUT please ignore Create OrCID IDs for your employees [the fifth section] and all the' Additional Resources' sections (out of date)
At this stage you only need the high-level overview, as in the prezi, no details.
Instead of the last section, look over the create on demand workflow

3. Integration options and the API
vendor systems vs build your own; API basics
Australian Access Federation webinar, Melroy Almeida https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9IPhoAPw38&feature=youtu.be 06:00 to 14:00 minutes
 
Tuesday 18 October ? etcVenues, Prospero House, London SE1 1GA (Borough Tube) - 10.30am to 4.30pm

A ?Hack Day? to develop software to address 'challenges' based on Use Cases defined at the 30 September event. Key challenges will be circulated in advance.
 
Whilst this is primarily for developers, their work will benefit from guidance on the day from domain experts ? ORCID members with real needs! There will therefore be opportunities to work solo or in small teams, side-by-side with users.
The day will be supported by facilitators from ORCID, from universities and from the Jisc team. It will include opportunity to dig deep into the features of the ORCID API (both reading and writing data), to review code and to identify opportunities for reuse based on Open Source principles.
 
Note ? The Jisc team will be planning separate days for those who want address system specific interoperability requirements.
 
10:00 ? Registration and Coffee etc
10:30 ? Welcome & Introductions 
10:45 ? Presentation of key use cases developed in Event 1
11:15 ? Split into project groups for development
15:15  ? Presentations by each group on development
