JISC Developer Happiness Days

Mia Ridge from the Science Museum and Tony Hirst from the Open University have both mentioned the GOOD APIs survey on their blogs:

In his post Tony also mentions the JISC Developer Happiness Days (9-13 February 2009, London). The Good APIs fully intends to have a presence at this event, possibly on the Community gatherings day (Thursday 12 February).

This is a “day of community activities based around specific software types, bringing everyone back into the systems they work with on a day-to-day basis. Pitch ideas to your fellow community members and take the opportunity to drop in on a different community session as well“.

At the moment the JISC Developer Happiness team are offereing free beds to novice developers who wouldn’t normally get funding to attend the event. Take a look!

Survey for Good APIs Project

In order to collate information the project team have written a very brief research survey asking you about your use of APIs (both providing and consuming).

If you could spare just 5 – 10 minutes of your time to fill in the survey it would be really helpful and greatly appreciated.

If you would like to be notified of the release of any documentation please fill in your e-mail address on the first page of the survey.

All data will be treated in a sensitive way and no names will be included in any of published documentation. The survey will close on Wednesday 21st January.

Thanks for your help.
