S4: DDI tools: No tools, no standard (Fri, 2016-06-03)
Chair:Marcel Hebing

  • DDI Tools Session: No Tools, No Standard
    Marcel Hebing ()


    The acceptance and adoption of a standard like DDI highly depends on the availability of software tools to use it. The DDI Developers Community is a part of the DDI Alliance where software developers from around the world can meet and swap ideas on working with DDI in various programming environments and languages. In this session we like to give you an introduction to our work and present you a selection of available tools. This Session will give you an overview of tools available from the community.

    Detailed presentations of tools include:

    - Dan Smith and Jeremy Iverson: Colectica
    - Daniel Katzberg: Using metadata to auto-generate variable
    - Knut Wenzig: Packages for Stata and R using DDI on Rails metadata
    - Marcel Hebing: DDI on Rails
    - Olof Olsen and Jannik Jensen: The healthy portable portal
    - Samuel Spencer: Aristotle Metadata Registry
