Ideas Challenge Winners!

(posting on behalf of Claire Knowles and Adam Field, Ideas Challenge Co-Chairs)

This year, the Open Repositories conference ran a full developer track, which included both paper presentations and the Ideas Challenge. Based on previous Developer Challenges, which saw small teams develop prototypes to solve problems, the Ideas Challenge tasked the conference attendees to form small teams to propose solutions to problems, but without actually doing any development.

We kicked off the Ideas Challenge with a social on Monday evening at the Tomlinson Tap Room sponsored by DuraSpace, Digital Preservation Network and Orcid, where ice was broken and teams started to form.



By 2pm(ish) on Wednesday we had 9 entries, many with new collaborators who had formed teams in the previous couple of days
