There is just one week to go until Repository Fringe 2013, which takes 
place in Edinburgh from 31st July 2013 to 2nd August 2013.

You can find out more about the Fringe on the website: 

Registration is still open if you would like to secure your place: 


We are delighted to announce that we have published our programme filled 
with super presentations, round tables and Pecha Kucha. If you would 
still like to make a contribution to the programme there is just enough 
time for submitting a last minute Pecha Kucha, otherwise we are happy to 
receive updates, ideas, etc. as guest blog posts, videos or other 
digital materials to be shared on the Repository Fringe website.

Joining online

If you cannot make the event in person but would like to follow on 
remotely then please keep an eye on our hashtag #rfringe13 and on the 
blog. There will be some live blogging and we have volunteer bloggers 
(and welcome more if you'd like to take part) who will share their 
reflections throughout the event. We will also be videoing all of the 
talks (any taking place in Room 1) and these will be shared online as 
quickly as we can after the event.

Developer Challenge

If you have registered for the event and are taking part in the 
Developer Challenge do take the time to take a look at our prizes, our 
theme for this year, and our rules. If you have indicated that you may 
be taking part in the Challenge you will also receive an email shortly 
with a few more details from Muriel Mewissen who is coordinating the 
Developer Challenge this year.

The Developer Challenge is very deliberately at the heart of the Fringe 
this year. We want there to be lots of opportunities to chat and 
exchange ideas across the whole event. With that in mine if you would 
like to be part of the Developer Challenge but cannot make it along in 
person you can still submit your idea/hack online. Take a look at the 
Developer Challenge page for more on how to do this. Our dedicated 
Challenge hashtag is: #rfringe13dev.

Thank You
We are very much looking forward to seeing some of you in Edinburgh next 
week. We think this will be another fantastic Repository Fringe!
