OPeNDAP Announces a Developers Workshop—at Summer ESIP—on the Application and Evolution of DAP

As part of this summer's ESIP Federation meeting, we at OPeNDAP are organizing a Developers Workshop on July 7-8. Presentations are welcome on the full range of efforts related to the Data Access Protocol (DAP), with special interest in how DAP and its applications are evolving. Covered topics likely will include cloud storage, async access, semantics, and extended server functions, and invited speakers on several of these will be announced soon.

OPeNDAP and Unidata staff will offer a tutorial on DAP4, emphasizing how clients and servers may be updated to exploit its advances over DAP2. DAP4 has been developed jointly by Unidata and OPeNDAP under a grant from NOAA. The tutorial will cover both the basic protocol as described on the project page and some of the extensions, including server processing and asynchronous responses.

Please plan to attend and to share your own DAP-related work, whether your emphasis is on DAP clients or DAP servers. Previous workshops have reflected a rich array of interesting ideas and our last Developers Meeting was seven years ago, so there should be plenty of new material!

Please submit your ideas for sessions and/or abstracts for presentations you would like to make to by May 31st 2014.
