Hello Discovery Cluster, & Products and Services,
Echoing the EarthCube broker hack-a-thon announcement that Steve posted last week - Note that participation is open to everyone. As the Esri Geoportal Server will be the featured broker this round, this session provides a unique opportunity to investigate the geoportal software from a services and access perspective in a very guided way.  The instance we'll be working with is our own Discovery Cluster geoportal implementation.

We welcome the participation of you and your colleagues.  Steve's message below provides further details - the intro webinar will be offered this Thursday and repeated on Friday.

Best Regards, Christine White, SDI Solutions Team at Esri
Dear Hack-a-Thon Participant, EarthCube Brokering CA Member, ESIP Members, and Others:

Welcome to the Hack-a-Thon 2 events from the EarthCube Brokering Concept Award team.  If you participated in Hack-a-Thon 1, let me thank you again.  Hack-a-Thon 2 will feature a different brokering solution, the ESRI Geoportal.  This introductory webinar for Hack-a-Thon 2 will take place next week.  We are holding it twice in order to accommodate more participation.  The webinars will be held on Thursday, August 16 at 10:00 EDT (see the EarthCube event<http://earthcube.ning.com/events/brokering-webinar-hack-a-thon-2-time-in-edt> for details), and then again on Friday, August 17 at 15:00 EDT (see the EarthCube event<http://earthcube.ning.com/events/brokering-webinar-repeat-hack-a-thon-2-time-in-edt> for details).  Please check your local time based on the EDT times given.

There is nothing in particular that you need to do to prepare for this webinar.  We will introduce the progress that the Brokering team has made since the Charrette 2 event in June, review the EarthCube goals for brokering, do a demo of the ESRI Geoportal for brokering, and discuss the plans for Hack-a-Thon 2.  The Hack-a-Thon itself will take place on August 31 at 11:00 EDT (event details to be announced).  The time between the webinar next week and the Hack-a-Thon will allow you to make sure your services and client applications can interact with the broker.  A member from the ESRI Geoportal team will be available to assist in the event there are problems to resolve.

Material related to the ESRI Geoportal being used for Hack-a-Thon 2 can be found on the Brokering EarthCube site on the Hack-a-Thon 2 page<http://earthcube.ning.com/group/brokering/page/brokering-hack-a-thon-2>.  The WebEx details for this webinar will be sent to you early next week when they are available.

Thanks again, and we look forward to a successful webinar and follow-up Hack-a-Thon.
