This workshop will target developers and focus on building custom modules, adding support for new data formats and new service protocols to, as well as extending the server to support server-side functions and other protocols.

All attendees are asked to bring a PC laptop and will be given a Linux virtual machine. If people want to use a Mac, they will have to be able to 'roll with the punches' when it comes to building code in that environment.
We will provide attendees with a binder for the lecture and hands-on info.
