Overview: This event – the first of the two major ODIN community events – will be a combination of a traditional-style conference and a technology-focused, hands-on codesprint geared towards developers. The conference part will enable the ODIN group to disseminate findings and to obtain feedback & validation on the work completed so far. The codesprint part will be a venue for participants and invited experts to work together to assemble concrete demonstrations of the potential of open and interoperable identifier systems.

Registration is closed! (deadline Sep 10th 2013).
