Workshop Update 1: Agenda & Hackathon Projects

Looking forward to seeing you in October!

Thanks for registering for the workshop. I see many long-time friends of XNAT amongst the registrants — I look forward to catching up with all of you. But I see even more first time attendees — it’ll be a real pleasure to get to know you and to learn about your projects. 

The XNAT team is busy putting together what we think will be an outstanding program. There’s so much we want to talk about, it’s hard to fit it all in. We have published a preliminary agenda to the workshop wiki, please check it out and let us know what you think. 

In the remaining weeks leading up to the workshop, we’ll be sending out occasional emails to keep you in the loop.  Please read them carefully, as we’ll include links to advanced reading and resources. And, as always, if you have any questions, drop me an email —  In the meantime, happy xnatting.

Regards, Dan Marcus, XNAT Director 

Preliminary Workshop Agenda Is Up

The workshop is now just a few weeks away, and we are finalizing details of the agenda, activity planning and catering arrangements. We have published a first look at the agenda on the workshop wiki. You can check it out here: 

As you can see, we are focusing on ways to extend XNAT 1.7 through plugins and — as brand new functionality — containers. We are also devoting workshop time to guided hackathon development. If you have pet projects that you've been itching to work on, log into the wiki and let us know. (See below if you have never logged into the XNAT wiki before.) 

Logging In To The Workshop Wiki 

All workshop attendees now have a valid login to the XNAT Confluence wiki. If your account was just created, you should have received an email from Confluence that will let you set a password. If you did not receive this email, or just can't find it, you can set a new password here: 

Once you have logged in, feel free to tell us a little about yourself and your XNAT project here: 2017 Workshop Attendees

Also, if you'd like to let us know what projects you're hoping to work on during our hackathon sessions, you can do that here: 2017 Hackathon Projects.
