*Cool Tools, Daring Demos and Fab Features*

The OR2015 developer track presents an opportunity to share the latest
developments across the technical community. We will be running informal
sessions of presentations and demonstrations showcasing community expertise
and progress:

What cool development tools, frameworks, languages and technologies could
you not get on without? Is there a particular technique or process that you
find apt for solving particular day-to-day repository problems?
Demonstrate it to the community.  Extra credit for command-line shenanigans
and live debugging. What new features (however small) have you added to
your organisation's repository? What technologies were used and how did you
arrive at your solution?

Presentations will be flexibly timed (5 to 20 minutes). Live demos, code
repositories, ssh, hacking and audience participation are encouraged.

Submissions should take the form of a title and short paragraph detailing
what will be shared with the community (including the specific platform
and/or technologies you will be showcasing). Please also give an estimate
of the duration of your demonstration.

Submit your proposal here: https://www.conftool.com/or2015/ by March 13,

*Ideas Challenge*

The Developer Challenge this year has been replaced by the more inclusive
IDEAS CHALLENGE. We would like to encourage teams to form before and during
the conference to propose an innovative solution to a real-world problem
that repository users currently face.  Each team should include members
from both the developer and user community, and represent more than one

Teams' ideas will be presented to the conference and prizes will be awarded
based on the nature of the problem, the quality of the solution and the
make-up of the team. Find out more at www.or2105.net/ideas-challenge.

Claire Knowles at af05v[AT]ecs.soton.ac.uk <af05v at ecs.soton.ac.uk> and
