Beginning on Wednesday, May 16, 2012, I will be holding I have an informal "Office Hours" in #duraspace IRC every Wednesday from 1pm-4pm EDT (17:00-20:00 UTC). This "office hours" concept was pioneered by Matt Zumwalt & Chris Wilper, and it seems to be working well in both the Hydra and Fedora communities respectively. So, I thought I'd try expanding it to the DSpace developer community as well.

What are Office Hours?

Essentially, it's a promise that I'll be lurking/listening in #duraspace IRC during that timeframe, ready and willing to chat with other developers on any topics of interest to you.

  • Running into an annoying issue that you need some help with?
  • Have an idea that you'd like to bounce off someone?
  • Have something interesting you are working on that you'd like to show off or get feedback on?

Stop by and we'll lets talk about it!

Please note that, as with all #duraspace IRC discussions, public logs will be made available on


  • Every Wednesday from 17:00-20:00 UTC (1pm - 4pm EDT), just before the weekly DSpace Developer Meeting.  Just login and send me (tdonohue) a message if you have something to talk about.
  • Although I make every effort to be in IRC every week at this time, there are occasionally important meetings that pop up (or vacation/holiday days). You are welcome to send me an email beforehand if you want to ensure I'll be available on a particular date.
  • I'm also often in IRC other times during the week. But, depending on my meeting/work schedule for a given day, I may or may not be available to chat on demand.
