Hi Marc,

Will a recording be made available? This sounds quite useful, but not quite "staying up until 2am Australian time" useful :)

> Hello new package authors,
> Based on the number of new software packages being submitted to the 
> project it seems that Bioconductor is more popular than ever.  Last 
> release we added a hundred and ten new packages (a new record).
> A lot of the popularity of this project is because Bioconductor packages 
> have to live up to certain minimal standards (Nature Genetics thinks so 
> too, e.g., http://www.nature.com/ng/journal/v46/n1/full/ng.2869.html). 
> For example every Bioconductor package is expected to:
> 1) provide complete documentation so that new users will know how to use 
> them
> 2) contain working examples that are run when the package is checked by 
> the build system so that failure can be detected early.
> 3) cooperate with related packages within the project so as to 
> facilitate code reuse and support reproducible research.
> We hope you will agree that having such package guidelines is a big win 
> for the whole community.
> To help *you* contribute to Bioconductor, we are going to have a Google 
> hangout (on air) to allow you to tune in, listen to some tips from 
> Bioconductor package reviewers and then open up the forum for questions.
> Webinar Invitation: Contributing your package to Bioconductor: 
> guidelines and overview
> Date: December 10, 2014
> Time: 8:00 AM PST /11:00 AM  EST
> Please 'tune in' December 10th at 8AM PST for a Google Hangout to 
> discuss new package contributions.  And learn how to maximize the value 
> of your package contribution to the Bioconductor community.
